Photo: Pinware River Gorge Southern Labrador

The wilderness surrounds the gorge which was created by the Pinware River in Pinware River Provincial Park in Southern Labrador, Canada.

Looking down onto the Pinware River from the Labrador Coastal Drive in Southern Labrador, you can see how the raging river has created a natural gorge in the landscape. On either side of the gorge for as far as you can see, lush green trees grow atop the rock cliffs as the Pinware River flows at an incredible pace.

On either side of the river, the rocks are reddish brown in colour which are made up of quartz that was created many years ago in the Proterozoic Era. The water seems to have a reddish glow to it as well but that is from the rocks below that the Pinware River races over top on its way downstream.

The Pinware River is not a safe one to try and cross especially when the white foam is formed on the surface from the rapids. In the early years, communities were cut off from each other as it was impossible to cross the Pinware River. It was not until 1965 that a bridge was built so that people could cross over this raging river to get between the other villages and communities of Southern Labrador. ... continue below the picture...

The Pinware River in Southern Labrador is beautiful to see, but not one where swimming is advisable. Many fisherman will spend the day in the gorge along the river bank with their lines in the river waiting for a trout or salmon to nip on their line. This is an amazing place to see and explore while in Southern Labrador where nature has used its own powers to form the uniqueness of the landscape.
