Die letzte Woche habe ich im Gault Field Reserve bei Mont St Hilaire (in Quebec, im suedosten Kanadas) verbracht. Anlass des Aufenthalts war eine Arbeitstagung (mehr dazu hier, in Englisch), aber das Programm liess genug Zeit fuer Spaziergaenge im Reservat. Das Tagungshaus war direkt am See (Lac Hertel) gelegen.

The last week I spent in Gault Field Reserve near Mont St Hilaire (in Quebec, in south-eastern Canada). Reason for the stay was a workshop (more on this here), but there was enough time to explore the reserve on foot. The setting was stunning – the main house was situated directly on the shores of the lake (Lac Hertel).

Jeden Tag herrschte eine andere Atmosphaere. Mal Sonne, mal Wolken (und Regen), mal Nebel. Aber immer wieder beeindruckend.

The atmosphere changed every day. Sunny, clouds (and rain) or fog – but breathtakingly beautiful every time.

Das Reservat beherbergt einen der letzten Reste des urspruenglichen Waldbestandes von Quebec. Mit den fallenden Nachttemperaturen fing auch das Laub an, sich langsam zu verfaerben. Die leuchtend-roten Blaetter des Rotahorn stechen besonders hervor.

The reserve is home to one of the last stretches of old-growth forest in Quebec. With the dropping night temperatures, leaves are beginning to turn colour. The bright red leaves of the red maple really stick out amongst the green.

Die wenig scheuen Streifenhoernchen waren fast ueberall anzutreffen.

Fairly tame (eastern) chipmunks very nearly everywhere.
