Earlier this week I showed you some images of Western Brook Pond in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland. There you see staggering views of 2,000 ft cliffs that tower over the clear, clean lake with lovely brooks and waterfalls leading the way down. The cliffs were carved by glaciers. After the glaciers melted, the land rebounded and the fjord was cut off from the sea. Salty water was eventually flushed from the fjord leaving it fresh.
All of this geological history and remarkable scenery overwhelms the smaller beauty you can find when walking out across the marshy bog on the way to the boat trip. Your mind, so excited by the glimpses of the adventure to come, can overlook the beauty at your feet.
There is a lot more to Gros Morne National Park than the iconic Western Brook Pond, and next week I’ll have more images from other places in the park. Plus, I have a super exciting announcement to share with you!!!
