Newfoundland & Labrador 2003

Newfoundland

(Page 9 of 11)

  

Heading north up the Great Northern Peninsula along Hwy 430

  
This is all that's left of the wreck of the S.S. Ethie.
  
Along the western coast of Newfoundland the trees are battered so much by the almost constant wind they grow very low and dense. The result is called "tuckamore", and is pretty well impossible to walk through. 
  
Not far north from Gros Morne National Park are The Arches, a pair of huge rock arches situated right on the beach.
  
At Daniels Harbour there is a boardwalk trail running off to the east through bogs. Along the way we found many Bake-Apple berries.

They weren't yet ripe, so we didn't pick any to snack on. But as one of  Newfoundlander's many traditions of utilizing foods from the bush, these are commonly made into excellent jam.

  
Further along Hwy 430, heading north up the Great Northern Peninsula.

The Long Range Mountains run northward parallel to the road, but mostly inland off to the east. Here, near Eddie's Cove, the mountains edge closer to the coast.

 
  
Flowers Cove.
  
Near the north end of the Great Northern Peninsula the main highway crosses over to the east side before heading further north to L'Anse aux Meadows. It's a long, flat, empty bit of road.
