Montmorency Falls by rhoing

Montmorency Falls

Bus tour to Île d'Orléans and then a stop at this waterfall on the way back to the city.

From » “Open year-round, beautiful Montmorency Falls Park is just a few minutes from downtown Québec City. The waterfalls are 83 m (272') tall, a full 30 m (99') higher than Niagara Falls. Take the cable car up the cliff to start the panoramic walking tour at the Manor, where are housed an interpretation centre, gift shop and restaurant. Follow the footpath along the top of the cliff to the suspended bridge, which affords a splendid view of the area. Keep walking along the path until you get to the 487-step staircase down the side of the cliff that will bring you to the foot of the falls. There are also three via ferrata routes near the falls, along with a 300-m (984.3’) double zip line.”

The only place I've ever been in Canada is Niagara Falls, so I'm noticing a trend here!

@janeandcharlie Finishing up our trip to Montreal and Quebec … in May/June. That makes me more than three months behind in posting. For a couple reasons, I've decided that I'm only going to post when I have something. I don't even take a "real camera" with me all-the-time anymore. I started this project almost 8 years and more than 2,600 posts ago and I'm just out of ideas and photographic creativity. :-\

@thewatersphotos Your comment induced me to update the text and I found that this waterfall is 99' higher than Niagra Falls!

It's beautiful. I think sometimes one needs to take a break.

Wow - just checked out your photo of Montmorency- looks like there had been a lot of rain before your visit. I've been doing the project for over 5 years and like you I now take a lot of pics using my iPhone and the creativity has declined somewhat over the years. I am a photographer (semi-professionally) but am using my project as more of a visual diary now so the images are definitely not all award winners!!

@emmadurnford Yes, Emma, we've each been doing the 365 thing long enough that some fundamental things have changed. Now retired for 4+ years, I no longer go to the university campus where I taught for 31 years, so I don't walk by — or visit — the 4-house greenhouse with any regularity. With a retiree's life style, I've photographed what I think there is to photograph locally. :-/ So like you, for me 365 has become a visual diary and will be comprised mostly of
» shots taken on trips (including our one granddaughter)
» bugs —
» plants & flowers —
» and photos that might make it to the family photo-calendar,
which I recently learned my thirty-something daughters really enjoy each Christmas!
