"Morning mists rising from Nova Scotia's lakes and rivers mark the opening of a new day of delight during springtime in this maritime wonderland. Fishing for speckled trout, discovering delicate wildflowers or following the path of the white-tailed deer, the camper finds the daylight hours melt away, and comes back at night to the enticing sizzle of trout frying over the campfire."
