Canada is one such country that is home to some of the most incredible and shocking things, places and life forms in the world.

So hold tight as we take you on this ride across the landscapes and cultural quirks of this vast scenic country.

1. Bean Puzzle Tombstone

It took over 100 years to decode this enigmatic epitaph for two buried brides.

Bean Puzzle Tombstone

IN RURAL RUSHES CEMETERY, ONE headstone stands out from the rest. Rather than the usual RIP, the Bean grave marker is etched with a crossword code. A message below the code urges, “Reader meet us in heaven.”
Dr. Samuel Bean’s first wife, Henrietta, died just seven months after the two were married. His second wife, Susanna, also met her untimely end after only a few months of marital bliss. Bean buried his two loves side by side, erected the mysterious tombstone above them and didn’t tell a soul what it meant. He took that secret to his watery grave when he was lost overboard from a boat heading to Cuba.
The epitaph drew curious visitors attempting to break the code to the little town of Wellesley over the following century. So many people came to make rubbings of the headstone that by the 1980s it was entirely illegible and had to be replaced with a replica. The cemetery groundskeeper claimed he had cracked it in the 1940s, but never revealed the answer. In the 1970s a 94-year-old woman solved the code and told what Dr. Bean had written for his two wives (read no farther if you would rather solve the code yourself.)
Beginning on the seventh character of the seventh row down and reading in a spiral fashion, the inscription reads: “In memoriam Henrietta, Ist wife of S. Bean, M.D. who died 27th Sep. 1865, aged 23 years, 2 months and 17 days and Susanna his 2nd wife who died 27th April, 1867, aged 26 years, 10 months and 15 days, 2 better wives 1 man never had, they were gifts from God but are now in Heaven. May God help me, S.B., to meet them there.”

2. Smoking Hills

Smoking Hills

A search party thought they’d found the survivors of the Franklin Expedition. Instead, they encountered a hellish landscape.
It’s not hard to imagine the cheers the crew of Sir Robert John Le Mesurier McClure must have shouted out when, one day in 1850, they sighted plumes of smoke on the distant horizon.
They were the latest in what would become a long line of Arctic explorers seeking the doomed Franklin Expedition, cautiously navigating then still largely unknown waters of Arctic Ocean searching for any sign of the missing men, last seen five years earlier.
But the landing party sent by McClure found no signs of Franklin’s crew at the site, near Cape Bathurst, mainland Canada’s northern-most point. Instead, they encountered a blasted landscape more stygian than hopeful. Thick plumes of foul-smelling smoke rose from bare rocks, some stained an eerie blood red.
As sinister as it looks, the scientific explanation for the process is simple enough. According to the University of Guelph, the shale rocks in the area are laced with sulphur and coal. They react when they come into contact, igniting to give out those ominous columns of white smoke. A side effect of the process is sulphur dioxide, which the university says has acidified the surrounding landscape, making it look even more like another planet.

3. Fairy Forest

Fairy Forest

Visit Surrey’s lush Redwood Park to be transported into a magical fairyland.
It has an entire “village” dedicated to whimsical creatures, which is why people call it the fairy forest. The park is the perfect place for kids or just those young at heart.
There are dozens of the miniature houses scattered across the trail and amongst the trees—as if there is actually a town of fairies living there. Some are sitting on fallen logs or hanging on tree limbs and others are on the forest floor.
Each one also has its own unique colour scheme and design. The artwork is courtesy of preschool children in the area who spend a lot of time in the park and helped to decorate them.

4. Giant caves once used by military now billed as best place to survive the apocalypse

No, it’s not an advertisement for retirement property in Florida. It’s actually the description of a giant cave carved in limestone that one man thinks would be the ideal community setting after the world ends.

The land in question formerly served as a U.S. Army storage facility located in eastern Kansas. Local Missouri investor Coby Cullins bought the property from the government for $510,000 back in April. He then sold 75 percent of the land to Vicino, who plans to lease space to prospective post-apocalyptic residents, entitled Vivos Survival Shelter & Resort.
For those who want to purchase space in the underground dwelling, Vicino says they will be required to pay $1,000 for every square foot of space, along with $1,500 for access to a year’s supply of food. Altogether, Vicino says he has some 2 million square feet of space available.
On his website, Vicino says the location could save the lives of “nearly 1 in every 1 million people on Earth.”
Built more than 100 years ago, the enormous underground space could hold up to 5,000 people and 1,000 RVs some 150 feet below the earth’s surface. Vicino says he plans to install blast doors that could block the force of a nuclear explosion from as close as 10 miles away.
