Wow! Hard to believe this area. You can look out at Labrador and the North Atlantic. Some very unique vegetation and cliffs overlooking the North Atlantic. Not easily accessible by car as terain is very uneven.

Driving in Newfoundland is seeing a lot of wilderness. Here you really have a piece of wilderness of the wilderness... A pleasant short encounter with unspoiled nature. The view towards Raleigh is also charming

Beautiful beyond words, you will likely not see another soul..this is refreshing and eerie at the same time. There is a beauty in the starkness. Nature shows strength to thrive in such a harsh landscape.
