Distance: 16km (9.9 miles)
We have never experienced such abrupt weather changes as in Newfoundland. Yesterday it was 2°C with snow and rain, and today was 21°C, cloudy with sunny spells!
Anyway, we were out hiking again this morning. We covered 16 km until Jumpers Brook – halfway Bishop’s Falls – and arranged a pick-up from there back to our cabin in Norris Arm.
The trail was very straight at places; sometimes we could see kilometres ahead. Incredible what those railway workers did more than a hundred years ago: building a railway right through this wet area. And they did a good job at that: the railway bed didn’t sink back into the swamp, it’s still very accessible. What an achievement!
