Photographer's Note

“Sights of East Coast Trails” is the name of this collage of photographs. The 540 km East Coast Trail System is located on the east coast of Canada along the scenic shores of the Avalon Peninsula in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
220 km of the Trail have been hardened to a world class hiking standard. This section of Trail stretches from Fort Amherst, in historic St. John's, to Cappahayden, on the beautiful southern shore. It is equipped with trail signage, maps and supporting trail information to enhance your hiking experience along our shores and through the wilderness. This section of Trail consists of a series of 18 paths each with a northern and a southern trailhead that is marked with distinctive signage. Each of these paths can be hiked as an individual experience. Some paths are easy strolls, and some are longer and more rugged. Use of ECTA maps is highly recommended for locating trailheads, learning about distances and understanding how we rate the individual paths.
320 km of Trail are under development and are not supported with trail maps and signage. This section of the Trail includes the northeastern tip of the Avalon, from St. John’s to Topsail Beach, as well as the southeastern tip of the Avalon, from Cappahayden to Trepassey. This section offers many hiking routes that have not been hardened or signed, presenting a greater number of hiking challenges. (Information was taken from the East Coast Trail Association web site).
These Photos were taken from St. John’s, Cape Spear, Bay Bulls, Ferryland, where my father was born, through Cappahayden, where my mother was born.
This collage reminds me of my family history.
