Cape Breton, Nova Scotia
Glendyre is a small, Scottish gaelic community
that hosts a very large and almost
obsolete phenomenom - one of the last remaining
and possibly the best example of an old growth forest.
With white birch and sugar maple trees
measuring over 10 feet around!!
I was in a total state of bliss.
An off-trail hike of only 1.1 km seemed like 10!
The banks of the brook we crossed were steep
and laden with downed trees covered with moss
and hidden from view by mammoth ferns.
There were treasures everywhere!
|Yellow-bellied Sapsucker holes.|
This is only a small sampling!
Rest assured, this parcel of land is being strongly considered
in the 12 Per Cent Plan,
an effort by the Nova Scotia government
to secure the natural wonders
of the province.
