Have you been to The Arches?

The Arches Provincial Park is a natural wonder created by tidal action just north of Gros Morne National Park near the community of Parson’s Pond on the Viking Trail (Route 430).

If you have never been, I would encourage you to pull over and take a few minutes to see it in person. The massive formation is within view of picnic sites, which is great if you wanted to have a lunch and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings. Day users also have access to pit toilets. There is a paved parking lot, boardwalk and expanse of natural walking areas.

On a recent visit with friends from Alberta, we stopped for awhile. There were others sitting on driftwood, some had climbed to the top and others were getting their feet wet as the tide rolled in. Certainly a special feeling when you just take the time to enjoy something Mother Nature so freely gave us.

The Great Northern Peninsula is filled with many natural wonders, incredible scenery and the beauty of being surrounded by unique landscapes and being surrounded by water.
