Labrador and Newfoundland....The hard way
Recently completed a near 7000 mile trip from central Alabama to Labrador and Newfoundland, via the Trans-Labrador Highway. Pics are from mid-May. Chose this time frame so that roads would be clear, but snow still on ground to keep the dreaded black flies dormant.
Magnificent wilderness, numerous sections of 280 miles between gas stops , no crossroads, no driveways, no houses for over 450 miles of hard-pack gravel road.
Took the highway there, then ferry to Newfoundland. Another ferry to France ( two islands off the coast, St Pierre and Miquelon still French Territory) , then back to Newfoundland for yet another ferry to Sydney, Nova Scotia. Then all thru the Maritimes and Maine back to home in Alabama.
