We have been to the Gaspesie region of Quebec twice, once in June 2016 and once in June 2017. While we were in the area so that my Husband could run the Ultra-Trail Du Mont Albert (he won the 100k in 2016 and had to take a medical DNF in 2017), I have an ancestral tie to the area.
My mother was born in Gaspesie as were many of her ancestors. Near the end of his life I spend a great deal of time talking to my grandfather about his love for the region. I felt so blessed to get to visit and love the region he cared about.
I have written a some blog posts about the Experience:
- Back from Gaspesie (A summary post of what we did in 2017)
- Gaspesie Must Do: Rocher Perce and Bonaventure Island
- 5 Easy Hikes/Walks at Forillon National Park
And these are the videos I made of pictures and videos I took in Gaspesie.
