A few photos from the hike:
The iceberg above was my favorite of all. Very blue and smooth due to the unrelenting antagonizing by the Atlantic Ocean.
If you're looking for more beautiful photographs of Newfoundland icebergs, look no further. I have links for you!
A good friend of mine, and fellow biologist, takes exquisite photos of Newfoundland. Please drop by Chelsey's website and have a look. I promise, you won't regret it! http://www.chelseylawrence.com/
Also, if you want an iceberg tracker for the behemoths paying rent in Iceberg Alley (a large stretch of coast along the province of Newfoundland and Labrador), please check this out. http://www.icebergfinder.com/ is an incredible resource for locating and keeping tabs on icebergs detected by both humans and satellites. Have a look now to see how it works and then be ready to track icebergs in real-time during the next peak season (April-August).
I hope you enjoyed seeing icebergs and learning a little something about why we care for big random pieces of ice this week. There will be a couple more iceberg cameos in the weeks to come because I'm not even close to finished showing you Newfoundland.
For now, we'll head back to the world of birds where I have dozens of feathered dinosaurs waiting for the limelight.
