Cabot Trail, part 2

by | Jun 28, 2007 | Travel

(part 1 is here)

Our third day touring Nova Scotia started out like this…

However, once we finished our two waterfall hikes of the day, the mist lifted and we were able to see the much advertised views, like this one of the MacKenzie River Valley.

After Wreck Cove Point, the Cabot Trail went inland again for a while and we took a short hike through a beautiful bog garden that was covered in tufted rush with the occasional pitcher plant thrown in for color.

Near French Mountain we rounded the bend and were greeted by this view… (finally, back to the coast!)

(click on the photo above to get the large view, it’s worth it)

We spotted a few whales off in the distance near the Trout Brook picnic area, but the highlights were the coastal views in general and we were happy that the mist burned off and the rain stayed away long enough for us to enjoy them.
