Caledonia Gorge

Post by mikekowalski » Sun Feb 06, 2011 11:44 pm

ENTS,
I went for a snowshoe through some of the Caledonia Gorge the other day. http://maps.google.ca/maps?q=moncton&ie ... 4&t=p&z=12

Here are a few sites about the area:

A beautiful place; it's the first major river gorge from the eastern edge of the Bay of Fundy, and one of the largest along the southern coast of New Brunswick. The forest there is typical of the area, seemingly dominated by red spruce and yellow birch, and quite a bit of sugar maple. Near the southern end there's a waterfall and a large pool. It all looks so different in the winter, but it's just as nice. Climbing the banks was difficult, considering we have over a meter and a half of snow so far this year, but it was great fun.

Here are a few photos.

I agree with James. I have always been curious about this area. These photos reveal it in a way that brings the religion to life.
