This is where I have been working this past 2 weeks. The Tablelands are a large plateau located in Gros Morne National Park. the rocks here are serpentinized peridotite..the rocks turn orange as they oxidize. The resulting soil (and I use the term loosely) is toxic to most plants hence the area looks like a moonscape or almost desert-like. However, they do get plenty of rain...enough that pitcher plants grow in the gravel! There is a new pole line going through this area and I had to botanize where each pole was to positioned so that no rare plants were destroyed...and the region does have plenty of rare plants from a Newfoundland perspective. The only drawback was that it was late in the season (Aug 1-14) for many of the plants. Still I'll share a few of those I did see.
You can see in the first pic that the highway passes right along the base of the plateau..this is where the new pole line will be located. the second pic is called Winterhouse Brook Gorge and the third is the snow-melt river that flowers through the gorge.
