I don’t know how anyone can hate camping. One of my favourite things is to escape into the woods, put up a tent, start a fire, swim in a lake, drink wine, enjoy just being away and eat lots and lots of camping-appropriate food. Fortunately, Mont Tremblant and its 1500km of lakes, woods and rivers is only about one hour away from Montreal, so it provides perfect and ample opportunities for camping.
A photo recap of our camping trip and meals on Lac Provost in Mont-Tremblant:
Arriving – setting up the tent and starting the fire.
A quick hike down to the lake to check in out in the sunset.
Then dinner time…an appetizer of grilled corn, followed by grilled chicken sandwiches, ending with a roaring campfire.
The next morning, up early with an omelet made with onions, basil brought from our home garden, cherry tomatoes from our home tomato plants, grilled corn and local cheese curds. Paired with some fantastic white wine, it’s the ideal way to wake up on a hot summer morning in the forest.
A leisurely walk along the shores of the lake, including picnic table stops with Frisbee, swimming and vodka.
Lunch/dinner was beef and veal burgers, topped with more cheese curds, onions and tomatoes, and a sauce that was made by reducing the marinade that the chicken had been sitting in.
The rest of the evening was filled with more swimming, playing the ukulele, checking out other parts of the lake, more frisbee and roasting a whole lot of marshmallows.
The next day, exploring/climbing waterfalls on a rainy afternoon and sleepily making our way back home.
