After a two hour ferry ride, about 100 km of pavement and 500 km of gravel highway, we arrived in Goose Bay, Labrador this evening. As the backseat rider I read seven magazines and my entire 321 page book so I don’t have any reading material left for the Churchill River. The new gravel highway that connects the South Coast of Labrador is a memorable drive. Besides still feeling like I’m rattled from 500 km of pot holes, I cherish the intense sensation of wilderness and isolation that was apparent today. I also spotted a fox running along the road and two Minke whales along the coast. Road trips just spawn the desire to return for deeper and more intimate exploration. We head up to Churchill Falls in the morning and hope to be paddling around noon. Catch you next from the banks of the Churchill River.
