My next to the last stop in Newfoundland was in Corner Brook. I stayed at Kinsmen Prince Edward Park in August 10 – 14.
While there I took several day trips. During one of these trips, I went to Blow Me Down Provincial Park. I enjoyed eating lunch by the coast.
While there I noticed something interesting, stairs in the cliff. I later learned these were called Governor’s stairs. I hadn’t planned on going up the cliff to the overlook because my knee was bothering me. But I had to check it out.
Not far from Blow Me Down Provincial Park, I did some hiking in Lark Harbor. I started on the Bottle Cove Hiking Trail and joined one of the other trails in the area for a while. Bottle Cove Trail starts on a boardwalk in the cove and then goes up a small cliff.
After carefully walking around the rock on the cliff above and up and around a few more scary places. I came to an intersection and saw an easier way to get to this part of the trail. On the way back I took the easy way!
I spotted this Indian pipe which is not a flower, but a fungus close to the end of the trail.
While it was a bit out of the way, I wanted to go back to the Port au Port peninsula to go on a hike I had heard about. I will post pics about 2 hikes I took that day on my next blog , but wanted to post a couple of pictures here. The scenery along the peninsula was great – small towns, cliffs, mountains….
The picture above was in a quarry or something similar. The red truck has wheels that 6 – 8 feet tall. They are changing the huge tire and have to use a crane on the white truck to do this. I had seen these huge trucks before, but never thought about how they change the tires. Just one of those weird things I found interesting!
