f1fs24 Next we’92re visiting Ranch du Fjord on the coast of Charlevoix. Francois, who
joined me rock climbing, is riding with me and Poitras family, who own Ranch du Fjord.
They raise Haflinger horses, a breed that is native to Austria and well suited for the
conditions here in Charlevoix. pardpardeftab720ri720

f1bfs24 FRANCOIS: b0 So, a lot of mountains, a lot of snow,
lot of difficult ground so we can go all year round with them in different kind of trails
that we have here, same as Austria. pardpardeftab720ri720

f1bfs24 b0 Francois, what do you like about living
in Charlevoix? pardpardeftab720ri720

f1bfs24 FRANCOIS: b0 Well, Charlevoix for me, its sea and mountains,
and nature, culture, people, and with all of that with me I found peace here in Charlevoix.

f1fs24 Most residents of Charlevoix actually live inside a crater. 350 million years ago
Charlevoix was hit by a meteorite weighing billions of tons. Later, glaciers
b scraped b0 across the land, giving Charlevoix its
dramatic rolling hills and rocky coastlines. Here the mountains meet the sea, and it’92s
this scenery that attracted American travelers like President William Taft to summer here.

f1fs24 love the red on this tree and all the colors around here. It’92s so pretty.

f1bfs24 FRANCOIS: b0 Yeah. Well, that’92s part of the beauty
of the forest of Quebec province. You have three kinds of vegetation here that you usually
find in three different places, but all at the same place in Charlevoix.

f1fs24 We continue on to discover more of this vegetation, and enjoy leaf peeping, as
we head towards our final destination, a pristine waterfall. Riding here in the quiet of the
forest, I can understand how people like Francois, and others, have found peace and happiness
in the protected natural boundaries of Charlevoix.
