Canyon Sainte Anne — Québec, Canada

On August 15 we also drove to the Canyon Sainte Anne, about half an hour driving distance from Québec City.
Waterfall at Sainte Anne is 75 meters and 15 meters higher than the Niagara Falls.
It looked inviting to both of us...
Way at the top is the McNicoll Bridge
Below is the Mestachibo Bridge
At the lowest point of the gorge is the Laurent Bridge
Both of us are not afraid of heights so we were game for walking across!
We did climb 187 steps down and up again... for reaching the Laurent Bridge at the bottom of the Canyon.
Here you see where we walked and crossed the lower and the highest bridge.
Those were all suspension bridges that hung from swirling cables.
To the right you see those steps for reaching the highest suspension bridge.
We also went to all those overhanging decks.
Why is the water brown?
Due to all the metals in the water.
Here we went and walked all the bridges across the Canyon.
Beautiful nature as well.
This became open to the public since 1973.

Have any of you visited there?

  1. Nope never been there and the way things look, probably never will. For now, I am living vicariously through your trips and enjoying them very much.

    1. Dearest Debby,
      Thank you and just like you, at present we both would not be able to pull this off again!
      So we too look back and enjoy it.

      Yes, this was spectacular and we sure are glad for having done this, back then.
      Found your comment just now; in the SPAM... Blogger is crazy!

  3. What a spectacular canyon. We did not go there, but did go to Beaupre and visited the extremely big cathedral - I think it is a place of pilgrimage. The same day we visited the nearby Ille de Orleans, and found it very pretty, although under a lot of snow!

    1. Dearest Patricia,
      Yes, it is a spectacular Canyon. We both also did visit Sainte–Anne–de–Beaupré Shrine and got lucky that a wedding started. So we enjoyed the organ music with choir. Anna is my middle name, so it has a special meaning for me. Named after my Grandmother and Jesus' Grandmother...
      Ille d'Orléans we visited briefly in 1998 but very intensively on September 4, 2005 with our native 'Québecoise' friends André and Hélène. We loved the quaint little villages and they're famous for their special apple jelly. The St. Lawrence River has a tide of 6 meters!
      You really went during the snow period; all looks so different but still magical.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  4. I've never visited, either, in spite of growing up in the province of Quebec. I am terrified of heights, though; there's no way I'd ever do that unless it was a matter of life and death and even then, well, I'm not sure I could do it!

    1. Dearest Kim,
      Sorry for your fear of heights... Luckily we both never had any problem with that.
      We love to see such masterpieces of Mother Nature and also for being outdoors and active.
      No longer feasible but the memories are cherished to relive that thrill.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    1. Dearest Veronica,
      Oh, what a spectacular view it was, would also have been great with the fall colors.
      Sorry that you have fear of heights... We both are lucky. My late first husband had fear of heights.

  10. I've never been, and I'd probably never go (it's too far for us), but I'd really like to. I really like wild nature.

      It is far for you in Europe but like you, we both like wild nature far more than for instance 'just' the beach!
