Slag Mountain. That is all waste from the blast furnaces. Long boom excavators in the forground for doing the capping work.
DEVCO cabin car
Dammed up and blocked off harbour enterance to the Tar Ponds.
We hung around out Mira at BA's relatives, then headed up North.
Here is the repaired Chev at the top of Smokey. Put 'er in 1st, and floor it! King of the Mountain! ;D
Looking back on industrial Cape Breton. It was so clear we could see Pt. Aconi, the Radar Base, Membourtou, Lingan and wind farm, and New Waterford!!
We got up into Ingonish and set up camp for a few days at Broad Cove. Its about $40/night for full hookups. This was on a Monday, we spent the weekend in Sydney. Figured the campgrounds would be less active thru the weekdays. Had our choice of spots.

Neil's Harbour on the 'Scenic Loop' above the Trail proper. Take the loop, not the Trail, if you want the best views in that area. Tasty Chowder House in this spot.
White Point - great (short) hiking trails out to a point into Aspy Bay.
flatbiller from the big city. I will attemp to get to the arrow if I can find the road.
Looking from White Point to the shoreline of Aspy Bay. From all the positive comments on the pics, I was inspired to put a little effort into this and have labelled some pics.
I want to get to that beach! Drive around some, see a road called 'Shore Road'. Lets try that? It goes from paved, to dirt, to trail, but OK for the 2wd truck. (camper is back at Ingo). Finally we see carved signs saying 'Beach---->' Cool.
There is a little parking lot, but no beach in site. But there is this....
1800's graves, in the middle of the woods.
Then a 5 minute walk, and this!......score!
Holy Frigholy! This is awesome!
Um, not too many people!
Its too big to walk it all!
Looking North, there's that spot I'm looking for the road to again.
Awesome pics...looking forward to the rest of them!
Five more sleeps and we're there! ;D
04 Khaki TJ 4.0, 5spd. Sold in 2012. Bought back in 2015. Rebuilt and on the road again in 2016. Met my love in this Jeep, got engaged in this Jeep, and then married him on July 30, 2016 in this Jeep. Life is good!
Thx everyone! More to come. It takes a hour or so to upload a bunch of pics and write a post. I'll make a post each day before work this week, with a geography quiz. I've been where no one has gone! And some history lessons too. Did you know there is an abandoned island north of Cape Breton with 2000+ people buried on it? The graveyard of St Lawrence Bay.
