Oh Canada! Part Deaux
Our second day in Quebec began with breakfast at an authentic Huron village, with an exhilirating snowshoeing hike afterwards.
At least I was well armed. Weatherproof jacket: check. Gortex gloves: check. Thermal underwear and socks: check. Wool sweater: check. I was ready for the coldest of the cold. In the end, it was all for naught as the weather up there wasn't much different than it is on Long Island. In fact on that second day the temperatures were very comfortable.
Le Village Huron
Breakfast was first on the agenda at Le Village Huron, a Huron Indian reservation just outside of Quebec City. After the sugar shack dinner the night before, I was a little nervous about what we were going to be served at this 'traditional' Native American breakfast. I'd heard the word venison a couple of times, so I wasn't sure if I'd be eating too much breakfast.
Breakfast at the Huron village was somewhat normal, with eggs, potatoes, and croissants. Instead of bacon, though we were served bison, which was cold, fleshy, and very smoky. Aside from the texture factor, it was pretty tasty. After breakfast were given a short tour of the village and then we headed on our way to the next destination.
The next stop was a snowshoeing excursion. In all my life that's one of those things I never imagined myself doing. The itinerary called for a two-hour hike in snowshoes, with a break at a "snow kitchen" sometime during the hike. Within fifteen minutes or so from the Huron village we found ourselves at a large ski resort, where we were greeted by our snowshoeing guides.
The day was spectacular: clear skies and relatively warm temperatures. The snowshoes were nothing like I thought they were going to be. When I'd first heard that we were going snowshoeing, I pictured giant tennis racket-like thingamabobs. These looked more like those old time metal roller skates that you used to fit over your sneakers when you were a kid. They weren't wide at all, and they had scary metal claws on their underside. We were told by our guides to keep a distance from one another!
Once we were all fitted into our snowshoes, we were on our way up the mountain. We hiked upwards for almost an hour. The inclines weren't too steep, but steep enough to get everyone a little winded here and there, and forcing us to take a few breaks every now and then. As with the dog sledding the night before, the experience was exhilarating.
After about an hour we reached our halfway point, the snow kitchen. The snow kitchen was simply an open area with a table made of snow from which we were served bowls of fruit smothered in hot chocolate drizzle. It was just what the doctor ordered, giving us all a chance to rest and refresh for the trip back down, which would prove to be even more taxing than the trip up.
The descent downwards was a little steeper than on the way up as many of us had trouble keeping our balance. Many of the kids tried going down for spells by riding on their behinds. Being a teacher/chaperone, I felt the need to forge on upright. I tried my darndest not to lose my balance, but eventually I found myself on my own butt more than a couple of times.
The whole experience was great. Having completed the two-hour trek in this beautiful place on this perfect day, I couldn't help but feel a sense of accomplishment at having done it. It was definitely one of the highlights of the trip and something I'd love to do again one day.
With everyone both tired and exhilarated, we reached the final open slope towards the parking lot and our bus. It was the steepest hill of all, but at least there were no obstacles. Once again, a lot of the kids went down the slope on their behinds as we adults trudged down slowly and carefully. Within a few minutes everyone was at the bottom of the hill scrambling to get their snowshoes off. We said our goodbyes to our guides and hopped back on the bus to head back towards Old Quebec for some free time and some lunch. Finally, time for real fun: eating and shopping!
