On our way to Terra Nova

A hidden gem – Terra Nova National Park is on the eastern side of Newfoundland, in fact it is Canada’s most easterly park and Newfoundland’s oldest.  Terra Nova has it all, with boreal forest, fjords, rocky coastline, seaside camping and hiking trails ranging from wheelchair friendly to challenging treks.

For information on hiking trails visit:

February Results Are In …

Globe Walkers did an amazing job in February.  We increased our logged  kilometres from the January total.  Despite the frigid weather we managed to log 200,892 km in FebruaryWe also increased the number of walkers – we have about 70 more than we started with.    The average number of kilometers earned by each Globe Walker was 80 km.

CONGRATULATIONS GLOBE WALKERS!

As you know, I use an artificial formula to tell us how many of the parks we have travelled to.  With the wonderful showing in February (plus the late reports from January) we find ourselves just past Torngat Mountains National Park and on our way to Terra Nova National Park.

Unfortunately, I was unable to post about the west coast and northern parks, but the good news is I am able start posting photos and information on the parks again so watch for it.
