Discussion: Hopewell Rocks Flower Pot collapse

I just saw on Facebook that one of the "Flower Pots" (rock columns) collapsed on 3/14/16. Can someone post the O map showing where the change occurred? We orienteered there in August 2014 on this "bucket list" location where at low tide in the Bay of Fundy, NB, the 30' difference in water level exposes columns of exposed sandstone rock which are wider at the top and covered with trees and shrubs, hence the name "flower pots". The map and the event where fabulous, a thrill to run there.

Hi Mary-Jo,
I asked the NB people to verify the location. Looks like the elephant crashed into one of the caves:

Thanks, Billa. I'll grab my map and take a look.

When Facebook expired? I don't think that's happened yet.

Any new formations forming?
