Gros Morne, the Mountain

We did the Gros Morne signature hike – the mountain on our last day in the Park. I will just say the hike was hard but the view was magnificent.

This is the view looking up the first part of the trail – a scree field.

 

This was the view looking down that same part of the trail:

 

The top is all frost-fractured rock:

The views were still terrific coming down the back side of the mountain.

 

 

The trail was well maintained and even included some stairs to make the route down very manageable.

 

We haven't seen that much wildlife on this trip. We did finally get to see a moose – along the road on our way back from a swim and hot tub soak. Unfortunately, I didn't get a great picture before a motorcycle spooked him back into the woods.

  1. Wow! How exciting – such gorgeous views, terrain and now wildlife!! You must be having a fantastic time! I bet you end up with a bunch of close up shots of wildlife but safely of course! Good luck!

  2. Wow! Awesome photos. Gros Morne is now on my Bucket List. I’ve been to the Gaspe and PEI when but a teenager. Time to return. Thank you for the incentive.
    Happy Trails.
