A couple stands at the wooden railing located along the shores in the Pinware River Provincial Park and partake in the activity of iceberg watching as the icebergs float by. The Pinware River is part of the Pinware River Provincial Park, located in Pinware along the Labrador Coastal Drive on Highway 510. This part of Atlantic Canada has a lot of history and this is a part of the Trails to the Vikings, where many think that the Vikings first landed when they came to the new world.
This is one of the places in Newfoundland Labrador that you can stand so close to the water and view icebergs actually moving and along the coastline as long as the weather is clear and bright. The weather in this photo is clear and the sun is shining and that is the perfect condition to gaze across the Pinware River and view the icebergs.
The rocks that can be seen across the bay are old deposits of granite, some of which are 955 million years old. The ancient rocks are broken up with these ancient icebergs that move and change depending on the temperature of the region. It's amazing to imagine what the Vikings would have seen when they came here.
