From the top of the second-highest mountain in Newfoundland, Canada is a sweeping view of Ten Mile Pond. “The Chef” and I are were in Newfoundland exploring Gros Morne National Park. It’s an immense park covering an area of 1,805 square kilometres of coastal lowlands and ancient mountain range. It wasn’t part of our plan but as we passed Gros Mountain on our daily excursions its silent dare to climb it was too enticing to ignore. Sixteen kilometres and eight hours later I limped back to camp sweaty but happy. It was a great personal achievement.
