NY-Montreal Trekkers Reach Montreal!

This morning we woke up in Napierville and headed out to a Tim Hortons for a great Canadian breakfast of donuts. Right after we finished, we got caught in an enormous rainstorm that lashed at us for a few miles until we hit the Quebecois farmland. After 15 miles, we could see Montreal and Mont Royal on the skyline. A few miles later, we crossed a drawbridge over the Richeliu River and headed out onto an eight mile causeway into Parc Jean Garneau, where the Montreal Exposition 67 occurred 50 years ago. We explored the BioDome, an extremely cool environmental and climate museum before crossing the St. Lawrence into Montreal. We got to our very nice hostel and hit up an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet. We explored Montreal a bit and enjoyed the rooftop hot tub to end the day. Excited to explore tomorrow... and go on the hipline.
