Go for March
About twenty people joined on magnificent day, after a fall of providential snow, to go to raquetter in the paths of the Lake Beattie for the 4th edition of the hike " Forward, in March! ".
We passed in front of the sites of two pioneers' houses: that of the family Beattie and that of the family Lyster. We then penetrated into a magnificent forest of broad-leaved trees. After a little more than one hour of snowshoewing, we returned in front of the dam built by the city of Lachute at the beginning of the 60s. As you can see, the level of the lake is to its lowest since the construction of the dam.
Most of the pictures had been taken by Martine Jodoin from Jumana Boards Inc.
