Sorel-Tracy, QC

Friday I decided to drive to Sorel-Tracy, an industrial town downstream of Montreal.

A couple of photos on the way :

Highway 30, south of Trois-Rivieres, remains unfinished... So I have to take the old route 132 until Sorel, where highway 30 begins again.

On my way back : Nicolet


Thanks for watching!

Well shot.

I went on a student exchange to Nicolet way back in 1982. Brings me back (sort of).

You missed the bombed out Hell's Angels bunker. For shame

Those ARE excellent photos! Funny I never think of grit when I think of Quebec. It's got lots of grit. Thankfully!

Wow really nice photos; great compositions and perspectives. Kind of a depressed looking place, but you made it look great.

Really nice. And it's great to see some less seen areas of Quebec as well.

I like it!

Very interesting. I spent some time in the area many years ago.



Wow! They sure attract big stars!
