Fundy Trail's Iconic Flowerpot Rock Felled by Winter Storm

New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy has lost another popular rock formation, with a winter storm during the week of 14FEB toppling the iconic Flowerpot Rock and leaving it in two pieces. The storm pounded the region with 90 km/h winds and heavy rain, reports the CBC. The stack of rocks marked where the coastline was millions of years ago, and was dubbed “Flowerpot Rock” because of the trees growing on top of it. "I'm very disappointed to see that one of our key features in the park just fell over," said James Donald, the president of the Fundy Trail Development Authority Inc. Donald added that the rock’s collapse is a natural result of erosion through the coming and going of the tide, but climate change has brought more frequent storms and rising sea levels which accelerated the process. A similar set of rock formations further northeast in the province, Hopewell Rocks, recently lost one of its own flowerpots to erosion.
