Moose in Gros Morne National Park

A few pics of a cow and a calf on the side of the highway in Gros Morne a few weeks ago. The little guy seemed to be very annoyed from the flies and was splashing around in the water.

Avalon Wilderness Reserve

On Saturday I hiked from the TCH overland to the edge of the wilderness reserve, had a lunch, picked some blue berries and partridge berries, then hiked back. Altogether it was about 5.5 hrs of walking. I saw two moose, but before I could get my camera out, they were gone out of sight. The landscape reminds me of where I grew up, on the southwest coast of the island.

Here is a pic of me looking out from the top of Inside Hawkes Hill, overlooking the Avalon Wilderness Reserve. You can really see how the glaciers carved out Newfoundland in this area.

Rock over London, Rock on Chicago
