I’m so excited! Today we are finally in Gros Morne Provincial Park. This is what I’ve been waiting for since we crossed over from Nova Scotia. Our first day in the park is filled with sunshine and warm temps as we head out on our first hike – Burnt Hill Trail. The trail takes us around a long loop with great views of the mountains and Bonne Bay.
After the cooler temperatures on the east coast we were surprised by how warm it became as we hiked. Luckily there was a bench for us to sit a spell and take in the views.
From here we ventured further into the park to the Discovery Centre where we took a short break, took some layers off and then headed skyward up the lookout trail. The trail leaves from the parking lot and heads up eventually passing out of the tree line. Due to a knee issue I didn’t make it up to the top but I still got some amazing views of Bonne Bay’s South Arm.
I can’t even imagine what the views were like right from the top but next time I visit I will attempt it again. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for rain so it will be a more challenging shooting day as we start our day in Arches Provincial Park.
