Visite en Raquette à les Plaines

The softness of fresh snow. The black tree limbs. Soft yellow light from the lanterns. The animatrice in her long jupe, son manteau blanc avec bleu, les raquettes historiques.

I did not understand all our guide told us, but I understood some of the history of sport sur les Plaines d'Abraham. That information was not necessary to enjoy the trip. I wanted to snowshoe through Les Plaines in the dark, avec les lanternes. I made it up the hill to the Martello Tower without much trouble. Only the disengagement of the back strap once. And once we were up, fireworks from the dernière week-end du Carnval. Un très beau soir.
