Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick.

The Hopewell Rocks are located on the shores of the Bay of Fundy at Hopewell Cape. Raining or not this is a site not to be missed. It took about 40 minutes to drive in from Moncton. This is considered one of the most amazing Marine Wonders of the World and part of the World’s Highest Tides.

We were pleased the tide was rolling out and able to walk down the stairs to the the ocean floor. The majestic flower-pot rocks which are unique rock formations carved by erosion over thousands of years. The tides rise up to 4-storeys high.

  1. Wow, beautiful pictures from a very interesting site! (But then I may be biased, I’m a geologist, after all..) Amazing to think that the creation and tilting of these rock units started hundreds of millions of years ago, and that even the erosion into the “flowerpots” of today were formed thousands of years ago, dwarfing all of known human history… Puts all our world’s current health issues and political squabbles into perspective, doesn’t it?

  2. I’m so glad to see this. Now I know where a local artist got their inspiration. There is now a painting of Lovers’ Arch on a billboard on 118 Ave in Edmonton, and I had been wondering where the rock formation was found. Thank you!
