"Southern Gros Morne National Park" Woody Point by Redlats
Woody Point Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 59 photos
This picture is quite representative of the Gros Morne area. You can see the sea -- here it is a fjord on your left and the fishing villiages on the shore. Along this fjord there are six villiages in a row - approximately one mile apart with Woody Point being the last one. You can even see a bird flying, although it is a crow, and not a seagull which is more common.
There are a number of low-lying mountains around, and in the distance on the right is a special one - the Tablelands. The Tablelands are the primary reason this park is a World Heritage site -- they are an example of continental drift, in this case where the edge of one shelf was forced over the edge of another shelf. The result is the exposing of the rocks of the earth's mantle. This crust is unusual in that it is toxic to the earth's plants, so it is a desolute spot -- note the low lying mountain without any forests -- that is the Tablelands.
