island adventure 6 - Mount Maxwell

Later in the afternoon of the day we tour the bread and cheese places, we drive to the top of Mount Maxwell, which is a provincial park.

The last part of the climb is a bone-rattling gravel road that's  narrow and twisty. But the views from the top (Baynes Peak) are spectacular!

The cliffs beside the chain link fence plunge straight down hundreds of feet.
