Photo story: following the wooded waterways of New Brunswick, Canada

Life in this bucolic region is shaped by the river’s meandering path: anglers and canoeists are drawn to the Restigouche’s crystal waters, while the forests that tumble down to its banks are a playground for campers and birders, and home to the curious pastime of moose calling.
