|I took this picture at sunset along the west coast of the island just outside Rocky Harbor.|
|The woods of Gros Morne National Park, a mixture of peat lands with balsam fir, larches, black fir, pitcher plants, and some other really cool plants. It is especially the fragrance of the balsam fir trees that is so good for you!|
|This and many of the ferns in this area were finally sticking their head above the sphagnum moss. Other plants that were growing here included pitcher plants and alder.|
|But then you come over the ridge and after a gorgeous hike you get in the "Green Garden." Wild sheep graze here and there is some amazing scenery. This hike will stay with me for a long time, because it was so beautiful, but also because my phone was stolen here (my only bad experience on the island ... see my previous post <here>).|
Suffice it to say, we need to go back! We did not get to see it all. We need to hike more, go whale watching, see more moose, caribou, and visit areas we did not have the time for.
|The Murres of Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve. These guys are sitting on eggs.|
|Gannets, gannets and gannets everywhere at Cape St. Mary's. From a distance it looked like the rocks were snow covered, but they were brooding gannets. And it smelled like their food ... fish.|
|Need I say more?|
