Friday on my way north from St. Andrews to Deer Lake in southwest Newfoundland I made two side trips – one just past Corner Brook out through the little towns of Meadows, Gillams and McIver’s and the other further north at the southern end of Gros Morne National Park, which I will be visiting again and posting details about in the coming days.
This is Corner Brook, a fairly good sized town, as I drove past on the Trans Canada Highway.
I exited the TCH just past town to head west on Route 440.
This was just as I started out on Route 440:
The photo above is of the Humber River.
And yes, that is snow you see on the mountains in the distance (on July 26!). More about those mountains later….
The body of water you are seeing in the two photos above is Bay of Islands which comes in off the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the west of Newfoundland.
