A remote wilderness road
The Trans-Taiga Road is a remote road located in Northern Quebec. It winds through the vast boreal forest which is characterized by spruce, pine, rocks and bogs. Built to access the various dams and generating stations, this area has no town apart from a private settlement set up for workers of Hydro Quebec. The drive here requires a vehicle capable of handling coarse and gravel-heavy roads.
