Fall Colours – Bear River

Daily Image - 29 October 2012 - Fall Colours - Bear River

Bear River, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia is also known as the village built on stilts. This picturesque tidal village, nestled deep in the valley formed by the Bear River was once a thriving community, active in ship-building and timber shipping. Today it is a cultural centre and the home of numerous artists, galleries and shops, frequented by throngs of tourists. It is also the home of several fledgeling wineries who take advantage of the grape-friendly microclimate created by the steeply sloped river valley.
