New Brunswick, Parlee Brook, Friars Nose
Canada

Friar's Nose is a rock exposed top of the mountain with a magnificent view looking south into a valley. It is located off Arnold's Hollow Road, off of Parlee Brook Road in the Waterford area of southern New Brunswick. The hike to the nose is all uphill with an elevation of 296 meters at the top. The trail is wide enough to travel by ATV. While I was up here with my nephews we searched for a geocache hidden near by.

My grandfather was a Friars, a decedent of Simon Friars a Loyalist that fled New York after allegedly blowing up a powder magazine. He then swam the Hudson river and made his way to Ward's Creek, New Brunswick, just south of Sussex. Where he was one of the first white settlers to the area, arriving before 1789. In 1798 he purchased 212 acres of land and In 1815 he received a land grant of 330 acres. Many of his descendents settled in the area of Ward's Creek and Waterford.

When I inquired of my mother where exactly the name Friars Nose came from, she pointed at her own nose and said she had a Friars Nose, which she inherited from her Father. My nose is similar too.

More About Canada

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, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
