Montreal Walkabout on the Mountain

Glorious day, and worth the extra effort to get out of our flat, and thread my way past all of the massive road construction on my street to go for a wander on our mountain.

We are lucky enough to have Mont Royal Park smack dab in the middle of the city. There are sections that make you feel as though you're deep in the woods in the country, and other sections that feel like Central Park. This is because the landscape architect for both parks is Frederick Law Olmsted. The highlight for me is the grand lookout with its the stunning view of the city below.

My only pet peeve today is the number of people yakking on their cell phones oblivious to their surroundings and others. Some of them, unbelievably, were on speaker phone yammering on about groceries they have to pick up or in one guy's case, the wholesale price of silver amulets.

Seriously, people. Take five. You're in NATURE. Look around you, take it all in, and enjoy it in peace, because that's what the rest of us are trying to do.

We live in the far bottom right corner!

I can't believe you posted a picture of a squirrel! ;)

I know what you mean about people too tied up in their electronics to see what's in front of them. Or around them. Too bad. They have no idea what they're missing, but I'd rather not know their business while I'm trying to take it all in.

Missed you!
