Honeymoon, Nova Scotia, Day 4
Go back to Day 3
On Day 4 we headed out in a more relaxed fashion to explore Cape Breton National Park. Our first stop was this neat rocky beach.
We each took a turn actually touching the ocean that until now had been just out of reach.
There were a lot of ad-hoc rock scultures along the beach, so we decided to make one ourselves. If you're ever in the area, let me know if you see this one still standing.
Then we started our ascent into the highlands.
Here is a sampling of the foliage from the first trail we hiked that day.
It was kind of neat to walk on the boardwalk for the hike. It allowed us to enjoy the scenary without worrying about tripping.
Here I am looking confused, as if I don't know where I'm going.
From this trail we had a great look back at the Cabot Trail. Click on this picture for a larger version.
At one point in the trail we could go out on a long grassy ridge. It was insanely windy on top.
Here is the view at the end of how far we were allowed to go. You can see a trail though that I'm guesing people used to go out further on.
High in the mighty wind, all that can grow is low-lying grass, a few special flowers, and wild-berries!
After retreating out of the wind and along the path, we noticed a weird moss or lichen growing on a lot of the trees.
More in and away from the windy ridge, trees and high grass can grow. But it stills seems somewhat wind-swept at times.
Along the trail we encountered a group of people talking quietly and point toward the brush. Sure enough, there was a moose taking a nap. We waited for a long time in hopes that it would stand up, but it never did. Still, we got to see a moose!
When we got back to the car and started to drive back, I took this quick picture of the windy ridge the trail ran on top of.
Again, we drove along the Cabot Trail to our next trail. It was a little rainy, but we decided we should make the best of it anyway.
The next trail led through a beautiful Birch wood forest...
... over a couple of bridges...
... to a neat waterfall.
Kate and I take turns looking cool in front of the falls.
Lastly, on our way back to our cabin, I took this quick picture to go along with my "Chickens that Wear Hats" collection. Also in the collection so far is Pollo Campero and Chester Fried Chicken.
ON TO THE NEXT DAY!
