Montreal – May 2011 – Wet Canadians

After the long train ride the day before from Pittsburgh it was nice to be back in a car. We left Boston northbound, passing through New Hampshire on the way to Quebec. The highlight of New Hampshire was Franconia Notch.

Eventually we reached Quebec.

A couple of hours later and we were in downtown Montreal.

Once there one of my first stops was Ile Notre Dame, where the F1 track is. While you can drive it, slowly, we had arrived via the Metro subways so we walked around on it.

The 1967 World’s Fair was held here, and some decorative art remains.

Old Montreal is the most touristy area of town.

We had on and off showers which dulled the view from Mount Royal.

Eventually we took the steps down the mountain to our hotel.

The next day had even more rain, but as we left town we did a lap of the track in the car.
