A #lighthouse on Cape Spear in Newfoundland. Known as the easternmost point in North America, #CapeSpear is closer to Portugal’s Azores Islands than to Toronto, and just a short sail to Greenland. But make no mistake: This, too, is @bluejays country. #Canada — a nation of some 35 million — has only one @mlb team. For the baseball players heading into Game 6 of the #ALCS against the @kcroyals, that’s a lot of moral support. “We hear it from every angle,” said @joeybats19, the Blue Jays’ slugging right fielder. Hockey might be Canada’s national sport, but #baseball has its place, too. @ianwillms photographed #Newfoundland for @nytimessports. #⚾️

The Scenic Drive is an outstanding way to see fall foliage, but usually closes in mid-November after the first heavy snowfall. In winter, there are great trails for cross-country skiers and snowmobiles. Photo by Jay Wanta
