During our Québec City/ Bas-Saint-Laurent road trip this past summer we wanted to spend as much time as possible outside since we wanted to enjoy the nice weather but also because of covid. So we planned to do a hike in Parc national du Bic, one of Québec’s national parks. The park is right on the Saint-Laurent River and really easy to access if you’re travelling through the Bas-Saint-Laurent region. We chose to do Le Grand Tour hike which is 8.7km (about 3 hours) and listed as the most difficult and longest hike in the park. The hike also has unique time restraints since you need to complete it during low tide as it is mostly right along the coastline over the rocks.
Back in April 2018 I went on a little hiking trip to Arizona, well kind of a big one in the Grand Canyon. But on our way from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon we stopped in Sedona for a few days to do some hiking and get acclimatized to the dry air, heat and altitude in Arizona. Coming from winter in Canada it was a bit of an adjustment. The landscape around Sedona was beautiful, the actual town I feel was too touristy though. With so many hiking trails in the area it can be hard to decide which ones to do so I’ll share some info about the ones we did.
