Gros Morne – Day 2

Today we decided to tour the Discovery Centre which is on the Trout River side of the Park. Lots of great information and we watched an informative video on the history of Gros Morne. image

The sun started to shine and we were told that on a sunny day that the Lookout trail right behind the Centre is a must, so we put on our hiking gear and started up the hill. The Lookout Trail is a 5 km loop that climbs 300 m through the boreal forest and up to the bog meadows above. On a sunny day the views are spectacular.imageimage

This is looking towards the Tablelands.image

At the top – a well deserved rest and then onward.image

After the Lookout Trail we headed off in the Westfalia to Rocky Harbour where we spotted two Silver foxes close to the road.image

We had a fantastic dinner at Java Jack’s Restaurant & Gallery. Pan Roasted Cod and Bubbly Bake – seafood at its best. Everything was excellent from the appetizers to the dessert ( carrot cake and apple crumble ). Another great day comes to an end with the sunset below in Rocky Harbour.
