Arches Provincial Park

As we made our way across The Rock...

In August, as we made our way across The Rock on route to Labrador for the first half of our Torngat Expedition, we found ourselves along the western shores of Newfoundland, just north of Gros Morne National Park, one of the regions most popular tourism attractions.

Between Parsons Pond and Portland Creek is Arches Provincial Park. We got up close and personal with old limestone formations shaped by generations of waves and tidal flows. 

Once there, one immediately senses the power of one of Mother Nature's most fluid elements. The park also offers a quiet picnic area with great views of rock formations, and makes for a perfect half or full day trip outing.
