Deborah Carr, Hillsborough: A friend of mine has a small airplane and sometimes in the fall, we fly over Albert County to see the colours. The contours of the landscape, the subtle and not-so-subtle beauty of it all, instills a sense of awe. Sometimes, it brings tears to my eyes, because I can’t believe I get to live in a place like this.
Wild, rugged beauty. These ancient worn-down mountains and steep gorges are part of the Caledonia Highlands that were once higher than the Rockies. This is where Europe and North American continents collided billions of years ago. Mountains to forests, fields to marshes; rivers to beaches. A coming together place, if there ever was one.
