Our last place to stay in Cape Breton Highlands National Park was boondocking at the Highlands Links Golf Course where we played a great round of golf. This golf course was tough. The fairways reminded me of the small mounds called moguls in the snow skiing world. Stay on the golf cart path if you want to keep your body parts from being jarred apart. Great game of golf on a very challenging, but beautiful course.

Last, but not least, we just had to hike Middle Head. This is a 2 1/2 miles loop that starts near the golf course. It is a finger of land that juts out to sea. Very picturesque. This concluded our Cape Breton Highlands National Park visit.

Next stop, North Sydney and the ferry to Newfoundland.
