Thought I would repost this item I placed in the "Atlantic Canada Photo" thread:

A Few Pics of the Fundy Trail Parkway


This is the interpretive centre on the Big Salmon River. There are some interesting hiking trails starting at this point, including one that crosses the river on a suspension walking bridge and leads to the William Randolph Hearst Lodge.


Another picture of the interpretation centre. You can see a bit of the Big Salmon River in front of the centre, with the Bay of Fundy in the background.


This is the lookout at Long Beach. You can see the beach in the center foreground, which is 500' below you. The headland in the distance is Cape Chignecto, Nova Scotia. The amazing thing about the lookouts along the trail is that on a sunny day, the entirety of the Bay of Fundy is laid out before you. You can literally see all the way down the bay as far as Digby Neck and back up the bay to Cape Chignecto and the entrances to Chignecto Bay and the Minas Channel. The views are glorious...


Another view of Long Beach, with Cape Chignecto in the distance. Chignecto Bay extends to your left and the Minas Channel to your right.

One day (hopefully in the not too distant future), they will complete the Fundy Trail all the way through to Fundy National Park. When that happens, there will be a continuous coastal scenic route connecting Saint John and Moncton. Stops along the way will include:
- St. Martins (sea caves, B&B's, Restaurants)
- The Fundy Trail Parkway
- Fundy National Park
- Alma (quaint fishing village, restaurants, service centre for Fundy Park)
- Cape Enrage (adventure tourism, fossils, voted Canada's best view by Conde Nast)
- Hopewell Rocks (New Brunswick's signature natural attraction)

The completed coastal drive from Moncton to Saint John will be New Brunswick's version of the Cabot Trail. An easy day trip between NB's two largest cities with breathtaking scenery along the way.

Some pics my friend took in Gaspésie. I've never been there myself and I must say I was impressed by the size of the mountains there.

Those mountains in Quebec could easily pass for the BC interior.

It's not a province, but I think the Yukon has some of the best landscapes in the world. Kind of reminds of me of New Zealand stretched across a huge area, or maybe I should say New Zealand reminds me of Northern Canada compressed into one island.

Perhaps my favourite picture of anywhere in Canada has got to be this one of Auyuittuq National Park in Nunavut

Awesome pics everyone! Bulliver, those Alberta pics are amazing!

Anyways, here are a few more pics from the South Okanagan that I took, again from the White Lake area.














and the moon rise last night in Merritt




The White Lake area is quickly becoming my favorite place in Canada, along with Penticton.

Awesome photos of Quebec and Eastern Canada. And I love those yellow fields in Alberta. Plus, those SW AB pics were jaw dropping!

Love the diversity in the shots everyone has posted.

Here is some from my trips around Baffin Island Nunavut.

Igloolik Nunavut

Eclipse Sound Baffin Island

Pond Inlet Baffin Island


Pangnirtung

People Hiking Auyuittuq National Park usually finish through Pang.
And Qikiqtarjuaq is usually the starting point

If you weren't familiar with Calgary, you'd have no idea that this was right next to our dense downtown:

I just returned from spending one month in Nunavut for work but was only in the southwestern part near Arviat - the so-called "barrenlands". It was actually very beautiful, especially from the air in the coastal areas. I was lucky enough to see the caribou migrate right through the camp we were working out of (a dream of mine for some time now), along with six grizzly bears (on three occasions), a herd of musk ox, and one grey wolf.

You should try Auberge des Chics Chocs during winter months...

If you told me that second picture was in the Rockies I would believe you.
