Mont Saint-Hilaire in its Autumn Finery

There is nothing nicer in the Autumn, than to hike up to the top of Mont Saint-Hilaire, a place that holds so many childhood memories for me. Just before you hit the highest peak, called the Sugar Loaf, if you turn around at a certain point on the trail, then you get a great view of Lac Hertel.

At the top, if the day is clear, you get a perfect view of the region and the Richelieu River.

Once down again, you can take a side trail to the picturesque Lac Hertel.

On this particular day there was a group of about six artists painting the scene in watercolours and oils.

And who could blame them? No matter which way you turn, the scenery is a picture.
