If you notice, some hills in the back country stand out more dramtically thus making the immediate region look typically mountainous... Some pictures that I have seen of the immediate vicinity tend to prove this,...

The image was taken in mid spring thus explaining the lack of leaves on most trees.

The park which is the oldest in Quebec was instituted at the end of the 19th century. The mountainous back country once covered by foot gives the distinct impression of being far in the outback and thus is a great place to further discover for the sense of immersion in the pristine wilderness and possibly to take a hike up one of the higher summits ! No need to remind you folks that the bustle of civilisation is actually close by at the western doorstep to the park...

I'm still searching for some unsupected mountainous scenery. Out of curiosity check out the eastern extension of the Otish mountains. A low resolution Landsat winter image gave the definite impression (by the north western shadow on the hills) that the topography is starker than suspected leading to the understanding that such a small group of mountains is unexplored mostly once considering their shape which for some is remenescent of high mesas and for others looks like pointy peaks. Mind you, I'll never get the occasion to visit such mountains being way beyond the beaten track. Closer to home beyond the end of the " petit train du nord" trail (I made a short article describing it , thus the reason for posting such pictures-No need to mention that you folks were of inspiration-I tend to write miserably-) I uncovered in the vicinity of a lengthy dirt road going up to Clova (from the 117)what in essence looks like a short Canyon (where the "Chutes Malignes" indication is with Google maps) which would be delightful to picture. Thus I risk taking the bike path again in the immediate future for some pictures !

The Veloroute des Bleuets is a wonderful treck that is in the Lake St John region.

There are also the Valin hills in the vicinity some portions of which look like real mountains !
