Ascent Trip Report

This was mainly a trip to get bagels, but we ended the day with a highpoint. Jocelyn, who went to college here, recommended that we go to Fairmount and Saint Viateur Bagels to try what they had. The latter was far better, and also it was the best bagel that I have ever had. We continued on to see the murals on Boulevard Saint Laurent and then turned on Pins to go up the hill. We found streets that were mainly used by runners and bikers which reminded us of the forest park in Portland, OR. We followed signs for the chalet, hoping that would get us to viewpoints and the top. Sure enough, the lookout by the lodge was fantastic and had signs pointing out features and giving a history of the city. We then went behind the lodge and followed dirt trails, picking the uphill segments at each for, until we reached a communications tower at the top. There was no view from here. On the way down we stopped by two more viewpoints on the north side of the Mont and saw different sections of the city. We also stopped by the bakery on Saint Viateur and picked up a dozen more bagels on our way back to the car parked on Boulevard Saint Joseph.
