The beauty of summertime in Western Newfoundland

View from The Gravels Walking Trail. The Gravels Walking Trail is located on the Port Au Port Peninsula, and it features unique rock formations, glorious scenery, and clean beaches….and it is free to visit and enjoy.

We also took a trip to The Sheaves Cove Walking Trail. Hidden Falls, a beautiful natural waterfall was the highlight of this trip. Sheaves Cove is a small community on the Port Au Port Peninsula of Newfoundland.

A small river that feeds into the many ponds beneath the scenic Lewis Hills. The Lewis Hills feature the highest mountain peaks on the island. The hiking trails up the side of the mountain hold a beautiful view of the entire area.

We stopped by this river to have a few tries at the fishing pole, and we were lucky enough to catch enough trout for supper.

This little squirrel watched us as we sat on the river bank and enjoyed our catch.

Below is a shot of the Lewis Hills. Note the snow in the hills, despite it being August, the snow usually stays in the hills all year.
