Ascent Trip ReportI wanted to make one day trip from Quebec city to Kibby and things looked quite more easy on Google Maps than in reality.
Driving in a relatively bad dirt road with a car (I have a Jetta - one really needs a SUV to go there) I turned back because I got lost on Kibby Stream Road for many kilometers (trying to find out Kibby Mountain Road - which was not listed in my Garmin GPS). Once out of Kibby Steam Road, not having Kibby moutain Road in GPS, I roamed around a little in case I could find a clue around. Since no indication were anywhere, instead of losing my time, I decided it was wiser to go back home, study the map more and come back later.
Thus, I safely return home and I checked on Google Maps the path I did, where I was, what I should have done and where I should have gone, and finally, NOW, I am fairly confident next time I'll go exactly at the right place almost with closed eyes. BUT, believe me, next time, I rent a SUV to get there.
