|We almost get to see an ice skater on the beach!
At Chibougamau we turned onto Highway 113, a road that goes from west to south and will take you half way to Ottawa if you let it. We drove another 150 miles to the town of Lebel-sur-Quevillon where we stopped for the night at a municipal campground. The park is on a lake and it has a nice beach. Canadian ice skater Joannie Rochette was at the park, filming a television show down at the beach. By the time we parked and walked back to the beach she was gone, and the TV crews were getting ready to leave. Joannie won a bronze medal in the Vancouver Olympics and she is a big celebrity in Canada. She lives in Quebec.
We went back to camp and spent the evening trying to decide how many map-inches we want to travel tomorrow. The back country is not so mysterious when you get here!
