Mont Saint Joseph Outing

Mont Saint Joseph is a great outing from the cottage, being a little over an hour's drive away with gorgeous views from the top out over the Bay de Chaleur, Quebec and New Brunswick. On top of the mountain is an elegant cathedral that is open to the public. There is a charge for using the road to the top.
