Western Brook Pond

  
Western Brook Pond is actually a fjord that has been cut off from the ocean -- technically it is no longer a fjord.
  
At first it didn't look promising for our boat tour - they won't go if there isn't a chance of seeing the cliffs.
  

However, the captain decided to take a chance on it. And as it turned out we were able to see quite a bit.

  
One of the many waterfalls that spill into the Pond.

With this one, however, the boat maneuvered up close right under the falls, giving us all a bit of a shower! The falls are taller than they look.

 

  
Western Brook Pond is almost completely surrounded by steep tall cliffs, up to almost 2000 feet tall!
  
Two tour boats leave at the same time. Here is one of them.
  

Note the waterfall tumbling from high in the cliffs to the right in this photo.
It's still partly cloudy, but clear enough to see to the top of the cliffs.

  
Another waterfall!
  

And another!
