11 May Fair weather to you and snow to your heels
We drove the 700+ kilometres right across Newfoundland from Pouch Cove to Corner Brook, where we spent the night. Corner Brook is unexpectedly scenic, a small city set between mountains and ocean.
From Corner Brook, we drove to Gros Morne National Park, where we had rented a cottage in the wee town of Rocky Harbour. The park officially opens May 1, so not much in the way of touristy things or tourists were in evidence in late April. Most of the trails are accessible though, so we spent the next five days doing some incredible day hikes in the park, and feasting on fresh seafood in the evening.
