St. Adolph d'Howard
St. Adolpde d'Howard is a pretty village in the Laurentian mountain region of Quebec. We spent a few days there after New Year's playing broomball, skiing and eating, mostly eating actually. There was more snow than we have seen in few years and cold enough (-20 C) that drawing outside was not an option, so I sat in the passanger side of my car one overcast morning on the main street.
It is close to Saint-Adele and south of St. Jovite and we skied at Saint Sauveur. I think of the areas as the "Cantons du Saints", even though many of the place names are not actual saints but the names of the original founding families.
