Get a rare look at the mind-boggling power of nature and the inner workings of the earth itself at Gros Morne National Park. Gros Morne illustrates the process of "continental drift". Deep ocean crust and rocks from the earth's mantle are exposed. Solidified magma from the earth's crust can be seen in the cliffs of Gros Morne's Western Brook Pond. The scenery is absolutely astounding. Waterfalls, fjords, lakes, glacial valleys, coastal bogs, highland tundra and ridges - you have to see it to believe it.
If you're looking for a taste of authentic Newfoundland cuisine, look for restaurants bearing the Taste of Newfoundland and Labrador logo. The logo guarantees that the restaurant offers traditional east coast cuisine. Cod is a staple of the Newfoundland diet. It's served up in a multitude of ways: in stew, as fish cakes, fried, salted, dried or fresh. If you're really daring, try the cod tongues. You may also want to sample scrunchions (fried pork nuggets), crubeens (pickled pigs' feet), and brewis (a rock hard biscuit you need to soak in water). For a traditional dessert try Figgy Duff, a raisin pudding served steaming hot.
The store in Corner Brook you don't want to miss is the Newfoundland Emporium. They have a hodgepodge of books, crafts, antiques and other unique "stuff" - the perfect place to find souvenirs.
