Fabulous Saguenay Fjord

Mountain bordering Sanguenay FjordAfter lunch yesterday, Carol and I took an hour and a half cruise up the Saguenay Fjord. It was a peaceful mind-expanding experience. The captain explained that the fjord was created by glaciers from the Ice Age thousands of years ago. The retreating glaciers left deep gouges between high mountains – so deep that the water is as deep as the mountains are high in many places. The fjord is one to two and a half miles wide  and over one hundred miles long, finally emptying into the St. Lawrence Seaway. The part of the fjord we cruised in was nearly a thousand feet deep, with mountains rising majestically on both sides. It was awe-inspiring to say the least.
