Located on the highest point of Signal Hill, Cabot Tower was erected, beginning in 1898, to celebrate both the landing of John Cabot in Newfoundland and the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. It is a great area for hiking, even on one of the often-foggy days.
We enjoyed an excellent whale watching excursion, departing from St. John's rugged harbor.
Majestic whales were abundant.
A visit to the Johnson GEO center was truly informative and helpful in understanding the geology and topography of the area.
