Every fall I get restless and have to make my annual pilgrimage to see the snow geese as they feed up to get ready to fly south. It was a changeable day when we went but somehow the alternance of sun and cloud made for a soulful atmosphere. There were thirty thousand geese the day we went but I have been when there were sixty thousand. The hiking trails are for every level of enthusiasm and energy with rest stops along the way. the fall colors against the cliff and the shining river are wonderful. Try to find out the tide schedule and go at high tide (the st. Lawrence has tidal influence) That way the geese are closer to the observation site. Take a picnic and a bottle of wine and comune with nature. Great B&B's on Ile D'orleans. Enjoy!
