At the northern tip of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada, one reaches the general area via the Cabot Trail which encircles the northern part of the island and contains most of Cape Breton Highlands National Park. When the Trail crosses the norther end from coast to coast, another secondary road leads still further North, to the tiny communities of Bay St. Lawrence, Cape North, Capstick and Meat Cove. This road reveals some of the most beautiful scenery on the Island, both slightly inland, like this view, or along steep cliffs plunging down to the Atlantic Ocean. This shot was taken of the community of Capstick, with it’s well-kept homes scattered along the small road which eventually ends at Meat Cove. The background hills,the northern edge of the Park, are covered with the amazing colours of autumn. Bus tours come from all over North America to enjoy the views.
