Cabot Trail - Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

The Cabot Trail is dotted with scenic lookouts and is rated one of the 10 most scenic drives in the world by Conde Naste magazine. Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone once said, "I have travelled the globe. I have seen the Canadian and American Rockies, the Andes and the Alps and the highlands of Scotland, but for simple beauty, Cape Breton outrivals them all." -- Images in this gallery were taken with the Canon G2 (some with Olympus A28 wide-angle, Tiffen MegaPlus 2x) and a few with the Canon S400. Hope you enjoyed your visit here and that one day you will get the chance to visit this wonderful place on the east coast of Canada. For visitor info visit http://www.capebretonisland.com
