Hiking to Land's End

View Gaspe and Cape Breton on baixing's travel map.

This was probably our busiest day on the whole trip. We hiked up to the Mont Saint Alban tower, where we could see the end of Quebec. Mom had a panic attack at the top, so we came back down pretty fast.


Then we walked all the way down the other side.


Mom and dad stopped for another photo on the red chairs


Then I went all the way down to Cap Bon Ami to see the pebble beaches, but no seals or whales.


Mom and dad walked back to the trailhead and completed the loop. After I climbed back up the mountain, I ran all the way back down and met them at the end. They left a note on the car and we had a snack on the beach.


We went back to the campsite for chicken soup lunch. We made it the night before, so all we had to do was warm it up in the microwave and it was delicious. Yeah they have microwaves there. There was also almost a whole case of "Lime-a-rita" which I convinced my parents to take. There was no way someone would just leave that there for the whole time we ate lunch. I assumed they had a couple, thought they were gross, and left them on the picnic table for anyone to take. In the end, they were pretty gross, but I would say, a fine addition to our picnics for a few days.

The next hike was to Cap Gaspe, which is mostly a continuous slope all the way to the end of the trail.

There's a light house right at the end with more red chairs.

After another slope down to the water you can see the Appalachians tumbling into the ocean.

Kilometre zero of the International Appalachian Trail is also there.

The walk back down was windy, cold and hot all at the same time, but it was easy.

Mom wanted to see the sunset at Penouille beach. There were supposed to also be butterflies, but we didn't see any at all.

We had some delicious wraps for dinner and laid down on the beach exhausted, watching the sunset.

By the time we made it back it was a little dark.
