At the northern most point of Cape Breton Island is the Highlands National Park. As you travel the Cabot Trail you go in and out of this national park. Turned into a park in 1936, it offers many trails to allow you to take in the beautiful wilderness that is Cape Breton. There are all sorts of trails suitable for people of varying … hiking skill? Including trails that are suitable for clumsy oaf extraordinaire such as myself.
For some strange reason, this next thing amused me greatly.
It’s a bog. A wheelchair accessible bog to be exact. I’m all about things being accessible. Making things accessible is wonderful and I think all things should be accessible to everyone at all times. But a wheelchair accessible bog just sounds like an oxymoron to me. One definition of the word bog is: a place or thing that slows improvement or impedes progress.
That’s funny, is it not?
Waterfalls! Highlands National Park has waterfalls. Like this one.
