The Guide that droved me there decided to turned around because it was too difficult for his lungs. I was left with two kids and proceeded my climb to the highest Peak of the Province.

Of course it wasn't easy for me neither. I'm so stubborn that I just continued my walk.

Lots of heaving breathing!!! and I met my favorite people - QUEBEC!!!!

You joined a few elite when you drove across Canada & USA when you were young on a bike.

Now you've proven you still have the stamina to do what many cannot do.
