Hopewell Rocks and the Bay of Fundy

The Hopewell Rocks east of Moncton NB has tides that average 32 – 46 feet (compared to the world average of 3 feet or less) as 100 billion tons of water rush into the Bay twice a day. Beautiful remnants of the eroding cliffs are left stranded on the ocean floor.
