Arrived in Deer Lake, greeted with clear skies and a heat wave. The weather turned overcast and cool on the 4th as we head off to Gros Morne National Park.
Gros Morne ahead.
The Tablelands. It's the Earth's mantle after a major upheaval about 500 million years ago.
An interesting rock formation.
No soil, the roots are on the surface.
Everything grows low to the ground and very slowly.
Yes, that's snow up there.
Quite a few orchids grow here.
Lighthouse at Rocky Harbour.
Gros Morne cabins across Rocky Harbour.
Along the James Callaghan Trail.
Only another 1800' to the top.
Head over to Western Brook Pond. Checking out boreal birds, orchids and the occasional Moose.
Drive to St. Barbe, take the ferry across the Strait of Belle Isle to Blanc Sablon (QC), check out some spots on the Labrador coast and eventually arrive at L'Anse au Clair. It was cold & wet on the crossing although sunset was nice.
The ferry's Fire Plan looks easy enough.
L'Anse au Clair.
Exploring the Southern Labrador coast with a visit to Red Bay. Red Bay is the site of an ancient Basque Whaling station. We finally see blue sky! There seems to be a lot of icebergs around for this time of year.
