We drove to the parking lot at Western Brook Pond and then hiked the 2-miles in to the boat dock for a 2-hour cruise in this majestic fresh-water fjord formed by glaciers millions of years ago.

We saw a few fish jump, some terns, a pair of loons, sea gulls, and one bald eagle. Apparently the water runs mostly over stone into the pond, and the nutrient level is low so that not much life is supported.

It reminded us of Tracy Arm in southeast Alaska, but without the glaciers.
