Rugged Country

'Rugged Country' - a different view of the Tablelands, Gros Morne National Park

If you have never visited Gros Morne National Park or have stuck to the main highways through the park, you might not associate this photo with Newfoundland. But, if you hike up to the lookout above the Discovery Centre in Woody Point NL, you get a decidedly different view of the Tablelands. (See The Tablelands for an earlier photo.)

This photo, Rugged Country, was taken in mid-June and that is snow up in the Tablelands. In fact, there was snow at the lookout the morning we visited. Gloves and toques were involved. The retired Postmaster for Woody Point has hiked through much of Gros Morne and says he has seen snow in the Tablelands in August. Newfoundland weather is in a class all of its own.

The movie Lord of the Rings was filmed in New Zealand but one wonders if Newfoundland wouldn't have been an equally good choice.
