Lac Magog

Le marais de Lac Magog (Lake Magog marsh) serves as a winter access point for trucks and ATVs to the larger lake as evidenced by the flattened cattails. The ice fishing huts dot the larger lake. When this picture was taken, I was not brave enough to venture out on the ice. That didn’t stop the ATV that zoomed past me.

The marsh is separated from the larger lake by a small bridge with railroad tracks running through. Two major incidents marked these tracks this year: the runaway train in Lac-Mégantic travelled this section only hours before that fateful night. Also, a major flood hit the area on Labour Day weekend, washing out the tracks not far back. A train sits idly awaiting the repairs but nothing has been done nor is planned.
