New Brunswick, On Top Turtle Mountain
High resolution panoramic view from the top of Turtle Mountain. Turtle Mountain is in Loch Alva near Grand Bay-Westfield. A few tall building of Saint John can be seen in the distance. From the opposite side of the mountain you can see the Atlantic Ocean with Nova Scotia barely visible.
The trees in this area of New Brunswick are in the prime to show off their fall colors.
I started early on a cold but sunny Saturday morning to hike up Turtle Mountain to capture many photographs showing the fall colors and grab a couple geocaches
As I arrived at the trail head, a group of 8 hikers and 4 dogs, from the New Brunswick Hiking and Paddling Club, were getting organized to do the hike also. My dog and I joined them. They convinced me to do Mawhane Mountain also. Adding about 6 more KM to the already planed 17 KM. Some of the puddles at the beginning had some ice on them and at the top the wind was blowing like crazy, but the hike between was a pleasant fall day. The view at the top was gorgeous with all the fall colors and made the trip more than worth it.

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.
While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.
On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..
When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?
But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).
Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.
Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).
But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore.
"It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, Vancouver
