Newfoundland One Pictures

Newfoundland is another destination I've longed to see but somehow skipped when I was traveling nearby, but not this time. At first I was only going to stay 2 days but Newfoundland is too big and too beautiful, so I alloted 6 days to see it. It was bigger than I thought. It took a lot of driving [2,052 total miles back and forth] to cover the major features of "The Rock", as locals affectionately refer to it, in 6 days.

The photo journey is divided into 2 parts based on when I got the pictures developed. These were developed before I arrived in Bangor, Maine.
