Relaxing at Jean-Larose waterfall
When I was staying at Chateau Mont-Sainte-Anne for a few days, the weather was just perfect. After a few days of rain when I got sick in Charlevoix and had to cancel some of the adventure activities, the sun was out again. And not only on the sky but I was recovering fast.
I still had no energy to do the canyoning in Jean-Larose waterfall I was supposed to do with Marc Tremblay. However, I was sure that the power of the nature and water would help me recharge my energy.
So I went for a walk to the Jean-Larose waterfall.
On the way I passed a very peaceful lake where I admired the beautiful reflection of the trees and the clouds on the water. Then I crossed the road, walked down to the river and then crossed the little bridge there too.
I just followed the signs to Chute – the falls.
It was a lovely trek at a calm peace until I realized I had to walk 400 steps to the base of the Jean-Larose waterfall. Thankfully, I could have a little break at the 2 resting areas on the way, take some photos and catch a breath.
I think I still had fever on that day and was sweating more than usual.
Slowly, I reached the base with just a couple of people. First, I sat down, then I decided to lie down too and sunbathe for a while as the sun was getting stronger. The view of Jean-Larose waterfall was simply breath-taking. Once again I realized how powerful the nature is and that just a simple thing like sitting next to a waterfall can make my day.
It was one of those times when I appreciated the present moment and completely forgot about my sinus infection.
I remember I spent maybe 2 hours watching the kids jumping into the Jean-Larose waterfall and later on also a cute young couple cuddling just a few metres from them.
When the wind got stronger and my stomach was telling me it was time to eat, I put my Scottevest jacket on, looked back one more time, took a long breath and started climbing the steps. I didn’t feel the fever any more and surprisingly, I had energy to climb without having to make a lot of stops on the way.
3 cascading falls of different heights were so worth the pain of the 400 steps, I can tell.
You had such an interesting adventure activities! Nature hold so much beauty!
