Default Long Range Traverse + 2 day Road trip (Aug 8-15)

5 of us did Long Range traverse a couple weeks ago, really enjoyed, here are some our trip information and our pics to share












Day 1: Fly to Deer lake, NL from Vancouver, arrived @1:40am,stayed in Deer Lake Hotel

Day 2: Picked up the rental car and went to Gros Morne visitor center --- took the orientation session and navigation test in order to get the permit (we got A+ on test) and stayed Ocean view Hotel @ Rocky Harbor, watched the local famous Anchors Aweigh music show that night, highly recommend! Of course, delicious cooked Lobsters from Rocky Harbor fresh seafood store (only $8.5 each), we also get fuel for our stove @home hardware in deer Lake(or Rocky Harbor)

Nice report from the other side of the country. Those lakes look great but it looks kind of mosquito-y!

Beautiful! I did the Long Range Traverse in the summer of 2006. How were the moose? We had some "interesting" encounters with them

sorry,, I missed this one, we saw two moose on our last camping night there @ Ferry Gulch camp(~2:00am - 5:00am), they came to drink the water in the lake and ate around lake shore, they were so close to us as this camp is by the lake. a very windy camp, they were there eating and drinking for at lease two hours. it was so neat to watch them that close!
