We decided to hike the Green Gardens Trail today. The Green Gardens Trail is a 16 km loop and if you do the complete loop it includes two fords of the Wallace Brook. If you are a back-packing camper there are three primitive campsites that overlook the ocean on the coastal meadows.
The coastal shoreline is truly amazing and gives you some amazing opportunities for photos. Unfortunately it was raining by this time however you can still see the beauty.
Unfortunately my camera quit working for me after this. I’m hoping that it is simply a battery issue and that it didn’t get too wet in the rain while we were hiking.
We had an amazing time on this trail – one of the toughest we have done, we forded the brook twice – both times up above our knees in rushing water to cross. We followed some moose tracks along the trail however we didn’t see any moose.
We ate our lunch on some picnic tables looking out over the ocean and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. If you come to Gros Morne, the Green Gardens Trail is a must but be prepared for the Wallace Brook and the three mountains that you have to climb and descend before to get back to the trail head.
And this is what was waiting for us when we returned to Trout Lake Camp. Tracy had cooked the stew last evening and it just needed the finished touches, along with some heated Nan Bread it was amazing and definitely hit the spot. The end of great day.
