I stopped in Cow Head June 2 & 3 before heading north. To get to Cow Head, I drove through Gros Morne National Park (I’ll return in a few weeks to tour this park). While driving through the park, I saw Moose and Caribou.
The day I arrived, I hiked the Lighthouse trail in Cow Head Peninsula.
A view from one of the lookouts -
Spring Beach was my favorite part of this hike --
Newfoundland has many fishing villages and is known for it’s scenic villages
and houses on hills overlooking the ocean or gulf. This was my first sighting
of colorful fishing buildings.
I spent most of my time on the Port Richie trail. It is basically along the
coast on limestone rock that is very barren. The rocks mark the path I hiked.
In a few places it was very boggy and they had these boardwalks placed in
most of the wet areas.
Some of the plants I found interesting are below. Both of the flowers below are
very small, less than the size of my pinky fingernail. The plant between the
flower is very small also, with the larger of the reddish brown part being maybe
thumb nail size.
Note - I am having Live Writer problems again so am posting through blogger.com. It may be my internet though as I am using the wifi at the campground and it occasionally comes up and instead of connected says limited.
