Lake St-JeanIt seems that every time I return to Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean there is a heatwave, 33 degrees Celsius and without counting the humidex factor this time. We have, and first of all, taken advantage of this magnificent lake by taking a dive.
On the bank I observed two beautiful species: the Canada anemone and the Giesecke's bellflower that we confuse most of the time with the Harebell, species not presents in Quebec.

Lake St-JeanDuring the night there where violent thunderstorms, the next day a more bearable temperature waited us but the winds dissuaded us to dive in the lake before our departure.
A short expedition but very pleasant.

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.
