Further along, at the foot of Escalier Casse-Cou (Breakneck Steps) and along one of the oldest streets in North America, is Fresque du Petit-Champlain.

Now, the Parting Shot. Ice caves are a feature that many glaciers have. Melted by sub-glacial water these features sometimes emerge at the end of glaciers. Inherently unstable these caves can be entered when cold temperatures makes the ice hard and stops the melting and weakening of their structures. This photographer has some incredible photos. I encourage you to go view his website Arctic Photo.

Here is one of the BEST tattoos I have ever seen. Even though it is only black ink, the detail is phenomenal! The three-dimensionality… it actually looks as though her skin is being used as a corset-like bodice. Amazing!!!
(NOTE: I’ve been slacking lately with posting my Parting Shots. But will now start posting them on a nightly basis again.)
