"Exploring Western Newfoundland with Kids"

My family spent three days exploring Western Newfoundland and Gros Morne National Park on an August Road Trip across Eastern Canada. Within minutes of arriving in Newfoundland via ferry, I knew that three days would not be enough - I knew that I'd want to come back to explore more. The scenery across the western part of the province is simply spectacular.
