Our first stop in Newfoundland was Gros Morne National Park and we met a Canada Parks guide at the Tablelands area of the Park. She took us on a short hike and explained the geology of the area to us. The flat top Tablelands were formed when the earthís mantle was forced up several hundred million years ago during a tectonic plate collision. Because it was raining, our hike was shortened a little. We would be getting rain off and on for the next few days. The rain limits the amount of photos I take.

We then went to Woody Point for lunch at the Old Loft Restaurant and we both had Moose Stew Pie. It was very tasty and was the first time I had eaten moose. After lunch we were given some time to wander the area and, of course, go to the gift shops. Karen became known as the gift shop lady on this trip. While she was checking out gift shops, I wandered around taking photos. Before reaching our motel this night we stopped at the Gros Morne National park visitorís center.
