Day 7 - Thursday, June 23. Driving distance: 430 km

Day 7 of our road trip. We drove north from St. Anthony to the Viking historic site of L'Anse aux Meadows. After visiting various viking tourist attractions, we headed back south. We thought we could take a backway shortcut along the coast between highway 435 and 430 through the limestone barrens, but it turns out that there is no longer a bridge at Big Brook, so we had to backtrack to Pistolet Bay and take 430 from there.

We took highway 430 down the western coast of Newfoundland as far as the entrance to Gros Morne National Park (stopping at scenic The Arches Provinicial Park along the way). We stopped at the National Park campground at Shallow Bay for the night.

Day 8 of our road trip. This day was spent entirely within scenic Gros Morne National Park. We drove south from Shallow Bay to the Visitor Center, then continued around Bonne Bay (highways 430 and 431) to the area around the Tablelands (Tablelands vicinity very scenic). We stopped at the Green Gardens trailhead along highway 431 and started an overnight backpack.

Day 8 of our road trip saw us retrace almost the entire path from the day before, from the Green Gardens trailhead back along highway 431 and 430 (around Bonne Bay) and further back north up highway 430 to the Western Brook Pond trailhead, where we started another overnight backpack.
