Deer Lake and Springdale Newfoundland

Newfoundland has a portion of the THC (Trans Canadian Highway) that cuts through it.  Even though the island doesn’t look that big, it is actually rather huge and it has massive fjords that cut deep into the coastline.  That means what is merely a 400-km distance as the crow flies, ends up being a 1000-km drive one-way.  We wanted to get to St Johns to limp the van back to Wisconsin and Los Angeles due to the oil-in-coolant problem.  So Glenn elected to drive from Deer Lake to St Johns so we can finish the THC once and for all.

We also drove thru Springdale where the hills and forest start to get really thick.
