Smashed by turbulent water rushing over a shallow reef, Acadian sailors christened these 50 metre-high cliffs staring over the Bay of Fundy. Along with the thick fog, strong winds and boiling seas, Enrage seems about right. When its lighthouse was automated in the 1980’s, a group of Moncton schoolteachers decided to save the Cape, restoring its old buildings, building an interpretive centre, a fantastic restaurant, and offering abseiling, ziplining and kayaking adventures.

PRESENTED BY FORD OF CANADA
It’s a rare occasion when the name of a car aligns so perfectly with what I’ve used it for. Whether rocketing along the notorious Trans-Labrador Highway, or cruising among the mountainous candy of the Icefield Parkway, the Ford Escape has indeed lived up to its name. It has stood up to some pretty epic challenges, and that includes taking a 6-month baby on a 30-day cross-country book tour. Compact yet spacious, powerful yet fuel efficient, and loaded with features you’ll soon wonder how you did without, the Ford Escape more than lives up to its moniker. – Robin Esrock
