My wife and I just returned from 20 days in the James Bay area of Quebec. This is a picture taken at the end of the Trans-Taiga Road at the Caniapiscau reservoir.
[image]
This is as far north as it is possible to drive in eastern Canada, at the end of 666 kilometers of gravel road.
(N54*50.291, W069*49.903) It is purported to be the farthest point on a road from a town anywhere in North America.
It is 745 kilometers from Radisson, QC. To drive the round trip required carrying spare jerry cans of fuel. Mirage Outfitters at km358 sells fuel (diesel $1.39 per liter, ouch!) but it is a round trip distance of 616 km from their facility to Caniapiscau and back.
Here's Lynn at the reservoir:

And a view from a ridgetop a few miles back from the end...Beautiful Country!

Nice pictures, what are the three black lines on the front of the camper and the four things that look like a light bar?

Thanks for sharing your trip.

A light bar.

Ted, I had 6- 5 gallon jerry cans on my little trailer. I used 4 on the way back from Caniapiscau, and 2 more later on on the Troilus Mine Road off of the Route du Nord, as I should have refilled in Namaska, but didn't, and then decided to go see Square Tail lodge, where the largest Brook Trout ever was caught (2 record holders).

Fishing in Quebec is very complicated, to say the least. More on that subject later.

Very interesting trip and i will bore you with more photos as i get them organized. Thanks!

Jim,
Are you coming up to the rally in NH on the 13th? Be nice to hear more about the trip. I know 25 other TCers that would also like to hear about it. That is truly a TC dream trip. Loved the campsite.
