We live in an amazing city. We're urbanites. But we have the best of both the urban and the suburban worlds. Just a 10 minute drive can take us to the beautiful Gatineau Park. There are trees galore (you should see this place in the autumn, it is breathtaking) and lakes and hiking trails and bike paths. It's spectacular. We really should spend more time here. Well we did on Saturday, yesterday. We went for a walk around the Mackenzie King Estate, (I already posted about that) and then hiked (or in our case strolled) the 2km trail around Pink Lake. Lilah walked half, if not three quarters, of the way, even without our encouragement - we were pretty proud of her!
