Basically everywhere. I have only been to Ontario, NB, Quebec and BC. So much more to see.

One of my first trips when I get back to the other side of the world is NFLD. Seems like the type of place everyone should at least try to visit once in their lives.

Yeah - Torngat Mountain National Park in Labrador looks out of this world!

No way, you've been up there? Looks incredibly remote, gotta watch for bears I assume? The scenery looks kicking ass fantastic.

I'd love to do an Eastern Canadian roadtrip starting in New England (my native home) and go up to Quebec City doing a big loop up through Labrador, then ferry over to the northern tip of Newfoundland, head down to St. John's, check out the western coast of Newfoundland, ferry over to Cape Breton, Halifax, PEI, Gaspe, then back to New England. It would take a month at a minimum, but I know the trip would blow my mind.

Yeah Id really like to get up to the Rock, seems like such an intriguing place. Would love to go in the summer, get out of the desert heat to the air conditioned coast up there.

That would be quite the amazing road trip... Actually I haven't been to Torngat but I would love to go! One day I will - I have been to quite a few places around your beautiful state of NM though!

And you had green chile right???? Mexican food has never been the same for me anywhere else since I've moved here. I lover the desert, especially this time of year. In the summer I start thinking about going places all over Canada.

The thread may be addressed to Canadians but this New England Yankee has been to Canada and enjoyed it very much. My lady and I drove across Canada to the Alaska Highway some 45 years ago when it was all gravel. Great drive, great people and awesome scenery. I was really impressed by the size and subtle beauty of the endless prairie. Then we drove to Sudbury for a geological conference. When we drove through in 1968 the place was a dark polluted hell on earth. Some 30 years later a really pretty town emerged from the gloom due to a change in copper/nickel smelting technology and enormous efforts by Environment Canada and International Nickel. Since them we have spent time in Nova Scotia and Quebec both in the cities and the really boondocks on the north shore of the St. Lawrence Estuary.

This summer I intend to ride my big scooter (Suzuki 650 cc Burgman) to New Brunswick and parts of Nova Scotia. I figure I'll have to drive a car to Newfoundland in a year or two.

I have always enjoyed our visits to your wonderful country and hope to continue to visit.

I hope to one day see the Maritime provinces and Newfoundland, especially their ocean shorelines. In BC, I have always wanted to visit Haida Gwai (also known as the Queen Charlotte Islands) & hope to next summer.
