Crossing that "impassible" bridge along a seldom used gravel road leading towards the Valin Hills provincial parc in the "Lac St Jean" region of Quebec. The hills themselves are deemed as rising somewhat dramatically from the vicinity of sea level to a height of over 3000 feet and thus present the perfect occasion for some in depth exploration with the hopes of uncovering an image giving a glimpse of more dramatic scenery...With regards to such investigative quests satellite imagery gives us an indication of where to find more dramatic scenery...In that regard Landsat winter imagery further emphasises such topographical features. (copy\paste the following for an indication)

Despite the ongoing quest many have to find that perfect all terrain trail specifically adapted for use by mountain bikes, a gravel road in my opinion is as thrilling mostly once visiting mountain country. Here in Quebec despite the limited number of paved roads , there are numerous gravel roads that go far into the outback . Such roads (such as in the Manicougan region) may occasionally give a glimpse of scenery which may be more dramatic ...

For additional information about the images and camera make please check the exif data... Mind you , despite taking the typical precautions most of the images I take come out fuzzy which mind you (please excuse me for repeating...) has nothing to do with "Fuzzy logic " LOL !

I like this photo. The freedom of the wilderness, the small roads and the beautiful nature all around. And...I like the way the bike is geared up for touring :)

Although you'll have to admit that my gear looks awkward and..risky in the sense that apart from the higher center of gravity, a broken attachement may assure an encounter with a bitter fate . Actually, apart from the all rubber straps assuring that the luggage stays immobile, I double attach the base of the holding rack to assure that what the luggage is resting on stays immobile while furthermore easing the strain on the critical point of attachment ... Mind you the all rubber straps (which can sustain much more tension) I use serve a relate purpose since they force the weight of the luggage upwards towards the base of the seat...
