Day Six - Rimouski, Quebec to Eden Mills, Vermont (387 miles)

We started back on Rt. 132 again. Our first stop was Trois Pistoles (three gold coins). Some French sailor lost these coins here. The main attraction is the Notre-Dame-des-Neiges-de-Trois-Pistoles. This cathedral built in 1887 looks magical from the outside. The inside is breath taking. After we passed through Trois Pistoles the country turns into farm land. At Riviere-du-Loup we jumped on the freeway and sped down towards Vermont. It kind of felt good to open the bikes up and cruise at 85mph for an hour and a half uninterrupted. We crossed over at Derby VT late in the afternoon. Once across, we decided to cruise down St. Rt. 100. This was great riding. Nice twisties, and not much traffic. As we got about 50 miles south of the border we came upon a nice look campground in Eden Mills. After dinner at Uncle Bill's and Steve got revenge in the horseshoe pits. Our camp was right on the lake (Eden Lake?). This was the first time we had camped since northern Maine, and I don't think it was much warmer. My guess would be mid-40s.
