Newfoundland Travel Blog - Hiking

Updated: Jan 23

Many of us spend years "chasing the dream" in our 9 to 5 jobs. This was certainly the case for me but, after my retirement, I saw that life had more possibilities than previously imagined. As a lover of nature and owner of a small vacation rental in Pouch Cove, I often explore the outdoors, take photos, and share my experiences with guests in order to help them plan their vacation. This is my photo collection from my East Coast Trail hiking experiences. #eastcoasttrail, #hiking, #newfoundland

A word of caution, however: Hiking should be a planned adventure and is always best done with a partner. Proper clothing, footwear, and snacks are recommended.
