Red cliffs of the Madeleine Islands

After repairing the furler, we decided to spend the day exploring the island, especially the part with the famous red cliffs. Once again our folding bicycles came in handy and we went on a bike ride around Cap aux Meules island. After a couple of villages, we went to the North Shore lighthouse, where began our Red Cliffs Velo-tour. The cliffs are red sandstone, a sedimentary rock made of quartz covered in iron oxide.  Wind, waves, and tides sculpt them into spectacular shapes. Enjoy!
