In a glaciated valley between the Tablelands and the Gregory Plateau lies Trout River Pond, a stunning 15 km former fjord containing ancient geological history. A rigid-hulled inflatable boat takes tourists and locals for tours of the pond, including the geological features that led to the park's designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And, unlike nearby Western Brook Pond, Trout River Pond has accessible shorelines where the boat is able to stop for shore visits when conditions permit. For the full story, check out "The Magical Place" by Dennis Flynn, in the May 2012 issue of Downhome.

I was in the Trout River Area for the first time 12 Years ago, and it is stilled etched in my memory. What a beautiful tranquil place, one of Newfoundland's best kept secrets.
