Once departing the Botanical Garden and with the help of our GPS guiding us, Michel drove the car in busy Montreal while I glanced all around me. After a good half an hour drive, thinking that I might have wrongly programmed the destination in the electronic device, a mountain was finally spotted and up we went, way up the mountain's road thanking one more time our dear GPS. And to think that I was just about to throw it out the window!
After paying the parking fee at the park’s entrance, Michel and I headed towards one of several hiking paths that lead us way up to the summit of Mont Royal where we were rewarded with a stunning panoramic view of the city below. It was absolutely breathtaking. The summit also had a belvedere and a semicircular plaza where a crowd had already gathered, enjoying the view or simply relaxing in the Chalet where refreshments were sold.
After an enjoyable time, it was 3:00pm by the time Michel and I made it back to our parked car and headed towards our next destination!
