Waking up to drizzly weather we packed up our gear and headed north to Arches Provincial Park. Although the drizzle disappeared a fog had settled in but that didn’t stop us spending quite a bit of time exploring the arches. Arches Provincial Park is a small park but on a sunny day could very well be a great place to picnic. Since the sky was so bland I added in my own cloudy sky to create the composite below.
Venturing into one of the arches I discovered these “eyes” looking back at me. It gave me flashbacks to the Goonies movie. I decided to try out my wide angle lens to see if I could capture the effect.
Yup, it’s still got that “Goonies” feel.
Back in the car we decided to stop at Broom Point where a fishing exhibit and rocky beach waited to be photographed. The fishing exhibit isn’t the only building on the property. A lone outhouse stands on a hill held up by large timber beams in what I assume is supposed to keep the outhouse upright in the winds. It’s very windy here on the coast and I can only assume that it usually is.
On the way back to our hotel room we decided to do one more stop at Southeast Brook Falls located inside Gros Morne National Park. A short hike through the forest takes you up to these small falls.
We saw quite a few spots today, some I didn’t share with you just yet, so we were pretty beat by the time we got back for dinner. So many things to see and so little time. We have one more day of exploring the west coast before we make the journey back to Ontario.
