Canada/New Brunswick: Hopewell Rocks

The Hopewell Rocks should really be considered a wonder of the natural world. They were created by the tidal erosion of the Bay of Fundy – in fact, the highest tides in the world! The tidal ranges here reach an astonishing 17 meters (56 feet). The waves have eroded the soft ground of the Hopewell Rocks into hoodoos and stacks, while the trees and grass still grow on top. At high tide, all you see are tree tops, while at low tide – there are these amazing rock structures and red clay as far as the eye can see.
