Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland

July 2016

Some images below from our four nights in Gros Morne National Park, a World Heritage Site located on the Western coast of Newfoundland.  Geologically stunning and extremely remote, this is a place of epic proportion and spectacular scenery.

Our hike up Gros Morne Mountain, the highest peak in the park, was definitely the most challenging hike of my life.  The hike is 16km round trip and took us over six hours to complete. We were rewarded by breathtaking views of the Long Range Mountains and the Ten Mile Pond gorge at the summit, which I guess made up for the grueling hour of scrambling up through a rough boulder-strewn path.

Our hike up the Lookout Trail, from the Discovery Centre in Woody Point. No bears to been seen, fortunately, just two rogue moose!

Bizarre geology on our hike around the Tablelands.  The geology here marks a time when the continents of Africa and North America collided, pushing these rocks, originally beneath the ocean, to their present position on land. Cool!
