This was another pleasant day hovering along the Chaleur coast from Bathurst to Campbellton. The road was not quite as smooth, but relatively flat until the last 20 miles or so. After Beresford there were many small towns with very little population. Good old "google maps" got me lost trying to get around the Belledune Generating Station. First there was a giant smelter that was entirely too ugly to make a photo. Getting off track afforded me the opportunity to get closer to the power plant with it's belching stack which can be seen for many miles. It burns coal! Yikes! You can read about it here and the second article about possible future plans; Belledune Generating Station

Moving along, there were some nice views looking across at the Gaspe Peninsula (where I am planning to go), and even a wind farm in the hills. The road got quite hilly getting to the busy town of Dalhousie and continued rolling all the way to Campbellton. The bridge connects New Brunswick to Quebec and if interested described here; J. C. Van Horne Bridge

I am staying with a "warmshowers" host for two nights in Campbellton before heading for the Gaspe.
