Gander to St Johns

Leaving Gander we headed for Terra Nova Provincial Park. We were warned about the hills and the warnings proved correct and over the next 80km we climbed over 3000ft. We were pretty tired by the time we set up camp at Newman Sound.

The following morning the hills just continued. The road was a roller coaster. Newfoundland was proving to be a hard finishing stage. But for every uphill there is a downhill and this was a big descent down to the 'pond'. It didn't help that I had changed the rear brake pads the night before and they still had not bedded in. White knuckle ride. 

At Joey's Lookout there were great views over Gambo.

Everywhere we went we were met by friendliness and kindness, including the motel owner who found us a place to sleep when all the rooms were full and the mystery guy who paid for our lunch. The only thing that wasn't kind were the hills. They just laughed at us!
