Although distant of about ten kilometers by boat of the Camping of Lake Mékinac in Mauricie, the Cap à l'aigle, situated in the north extremity of the lake, requires a furthermore drive of 100km among which last 40 km on a more or less passable forest road.
But the beauty of the landscapes let's us forget about the long drive. The mountainous banks makes the lake a kind of fjord which shelters a flora which prospers on mountainous ground.
I have observed there, earlier in may the Early saxifrage
and now in june I can see here the Pink corydalis
, the magnificent Red columbine
and the rare Purple clematis, all those plants prosper well in rocky soil.
