Frozen fun in the Canadian cold  

Frozen fun in the Canadian cold

Not far downriver from Montreal, where the banks of the St. Lawrence River widen as it approaches the Atlantic, lies Quebec"s picturesque and often chilly capital. Quebec City, one of the continent"s oldest European settlements, is often called the most European city outside Europe. It"s the only North American city outside Mexico whose fortified walls still stand, and its winding streets showcase a French-tinged exemplar of old Romantic architecture (typified by the steep-roofed Château Frontenac in the photo"s foreground).
