"Did you drive and pull your trailer out there? I was close to there is 1963-64 at Goose Bay. There were no roads into Happy Valley. "


They've opened the Trans Labrador Highway a few years ago, the locally named Freedom Road because it does let them drive out of the province in the winter. Labrador is by far the most rural place we've been with our trailer. We of course did drive thru Happy- Valley, Labrador's largest city, about 10,000 people.

One reason we like the area and the drive up thru Newfoundland is the spring time appearance of icebergs. Equally important is the slower pace of the area and the sheer beauty and uniqueness of the area.

The first picture is the start of the Labrador Highway. The last picture is Pinware River Gorge which empties at Pinware Provincial Park located on a nice red sand beach. We did not stay at this park because it was 'snow bound' in late June.

As much as we love Labrador we love Newfoundland. We usually go in the spring, May-July so we can see the Icebergs.

One of the many attractions is their provincal park, Gros Morne. One could easily spend weeks there and not see it all. Beyond being a park it is also a World Heritage Center for it's geology. North of Gros Morne is L'anse Meadows, the location of a Viking settlement.

One of the many neat things is the 'mail trail' along the coast. In the old days the mail men walked from settlement to settlement following the coast. In the process they created a trail through the shore foliage (now maintained). We hike it on our trips (4 times now). In all our hikes we have never met another couple. Here are a couple of pictures, one of the trail and one a view from the trail.

I love to write and talk about Newfoundland because it's such a beautiful place. If you like animals, Newfoundland is the place, moose everywhere.
