Eighteen minutes beyond the end of the provincially maintained section of the road, well past the badly eroded spots, the road is again car-driveable and its level of climb has greatly eased off, though it still continues up hill. The trees on both sides of the road obscure the views to either side. This view is again a backwards-looking view.
Very shortly after the previous photo was taken, occasional gaps in the trees on the right side of the road allowed me to get partial views of the scenery to the northeast. This is one of the better photos I got there. None of these prominences are named, either on the topographic map or on the Nova Scotia Groundwater Interactive Map, but I take the one in the middle distance to be between Skye Glen and Lake Ainslie and those in the far distance to be the previously mentioned unnamed plateau beyond Lake Ainslie.
The holes of blue in the sky lifted my spirits, but not as much as this glorious view through the trees, taken just shortly after the previous photo. This provides a more open view of the landscape.
