Day 4-

We head out early this morning...







...morning shadow pic...








for the "World Famous" Cabot Trail. The actual CT is about 185 miles, and it is a loop around the northern tip of Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia.








Here we are!








What a fantastic start...







...with some amazing views...







...on a perfect riding day!








Stunning...








as we ride alongside the lake...








...a look back.






More in next post.

Day 4 Continued-

Between the curves...








...in the road, and...








...fantastic scenery...









...this day is shaping up...









...to be one that memories...








...are made of!








Mary caught some good pics...








...of this eagle flying alongside the road.









We're past the lake now, headed inland a bit...









...and it is a FUN road!

Day 4 Continued-


Ingonish is a town sitting in an inlet/harbor...








..it is amazingly picturesque as we ride up the other side of the U shaped inlet to the main town area.







Soon after Ingonish we are going to be taking a gravel road up to Mary Ann Falls.

Before doing that we get some fuel and then ride down to a rock beach for a bit.








Wow!








Texting with the shop, taking care of some business items.








Time to head out...








Back rolling for a few miles on some fun road...








...headed for the 7km gravel road...








...that is mostly smooth, but does have a few potholes...








...here and there...

Day 4 Continued-


...and a big one! It rained last night, so the low spots are full of water.








We made it! Mary Ann Falls.







It's a short walk to the falls...








...a beautiful spot in the middle of the woods...








...we enjoyed about 30 minutes here...









...looking around a bit...









...before heading back across this rotting bridge...








...to where the trike is parked. Now for the gravel road ride...







...back to where the TG is...







...more at home...the asphalt!






Will post more on Day 4 as time allows.

Great pictures! Makes me realize I need to go back there!

While I was there a couple of years ago I stopped at one of the many overlooks and ran into a guy named Russ McQueen. He is an entertainer/DJ from Boston who rides. He said every couple of years he get's a bug up his ass and jumps on his bike and heads to NS by himself. Hope to run into him again! You can meet the most interesting people on the road!
