You simply have to see this shot! Visuals Editor Julia Pelish was in Quebec and managed to get an awesome picture of rue du Petit Champlain in Quebec City.

Pelish: “If there was a title for Canada’s prettiest street, then rue du Petit Champlain in Quebec City would surely wear the crown. The oldest commercial district in North America, rue du Petit Champlain is home to artisan shops, boutique retailers, fine restaurants and a stunning mural that depicts the quarter’s history. The street is at the foot of the Breakneck Stairs, aptly named because of the steepness of their decline. The staircase is Quebec City’s oldest, dating to 1635, and has 59 steps. You’ll want to count each one carefully as you go up and down during winter — or after a long night out at the neighbourhood’s establishments.”
