一次偏远的旅途 A very remote journey
Trans-Taiga Road, Quebec
If you want to challenge your physical fitness on the go, or if you want to test your mental strength for a lonely journey. Consider coming to Trans-Taiga Road： a very remote journey in Canada. Trans-Taiga Road was built to access a series of hydroelectric dams in Quebec’s north country, it sees very few motorists and almost no tourists.
The Trans Taiga is the northernmost road in eastern North America, crossing some of the continent’s most isolated landscape stretches. The Trans-Taiga Road branches off from the James Bay Road (French: Route de la Baie James) at kilometer 544. It was built as an access road to the hydroelectric generating stations of Hydro-Québec along the La Grande River and Caniapiscau River.
For most of it, you’ll be treated to expansive views of low hills carpeted in spruce trees. There aren’t too many landmarks to delineate this lengthy road, though, with the most prominent ones being Robert-Bourassa Reservoir at mile 39 and Caniapiscau Reservoir at mile 362.
一年已过半 We've made it to Halfway Day!
Congratulations! We've landed on Halfway Day, the middle of the year. We've lived through 182 days this year, and today is the first of 182 days left—we're halfway there. Now, it's up to you whether you see this as a glass-half-full or a glass-half-empty day.… But the past is gone, so we're getting behind the idea of making the most of the remainder of the year.
