Montreal got its name from the green bump on the edge of the city, “Mont Royal;” an urban forest similar to New York's Central Park. Actually it was landscaped by the same guy, Frederick Olmsted. It was an enjoyable walk up the hill and the greenery was refreshing. We were surprised by the crowds at the top – yes, it was a beautiful day and the locals were out in force. At the top, I clicked this serene vista.

From here, the views of the city were breathtaking. I told you, it was a beautiful day. Enjoy!
