Day 16: Baker’s Brook Falls Trail (with Lady’s Slippers)
The Baker’s Brook Trail is a lovely 10K hike to a rushing waterfall in Gros Morne National Park, but what I enjoyed the most were the wildflowers along the way. I love lady’s slippers and it is rare to see them. The pink variety is apparently called the “Showy Lady Slipper” which is an accurate description, although not a very creative name. This hike was a good choice for dismal weather; we are hoping the visibility improves for our fjord excursion!
Beautiful flowers! I’ve never seen Lady’s Slippers before. Very lovely. Thanks for the photos!
