This year we decided to take a mini-vacation right here at home. Three nights in Gros Mourne National Park. I guess Gros Mourne isn’t exactly in our backyard as it is an 8-hour drive from St. John’s, but it is still Newfoundland and it is beautiful. Gros Mourne is a World heritage site and an amazing place to visit for outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, adventurers and explorers. It really is magical. A member of the Long Range Mountains, an outlying range of the Appalachian Mountains, stretching the length of the Newfoundland’s West coast…
