AND YOU THINK YOU HAVE A LOT OF SNOW.
ENJOY THE PHOTOS AFTER YOU SHOVEL YOUR DRIVEWAY, AND BE THANKFUL IT IS NOT THIS CANADIAN HIGHWAY.
March 6, 2004: Lyle Smith was out looking for the lost highway, and took a couple photos of the area where it was last seen, and wondered where it could have gone. Do you have these lost road problems where you are?
“I could have sworn, that the highway was around here somewhere.”
Well now, I guess that this proves that CANADA is not totally in the tropics, as some would have you believe.
Huge snow drifts closed the Trans Labrador Highway between Red Bay and Lodge Bay from February to April 2004. Hopefully you did not get stuck, and have to hang around waiting for the snowplow.
Jamie Pye, who lives in the area, took these great photos documenting the reopening.
April 2, 2004: Heavy construction excavator buckets and loader mounted snow blowers are seen here, working to re-open the Trans Labrador Highway.
This is not the first winter closure of it’s kind, and will certainly not be the last.
Snowmobilers, eat your heart out. Up the Labrador is where it is at. See what you are missing?
NOTICE, — To all you people, stuck in the tropics, are you not jealous of us right now?
While you are tucked away under your sweaty mosquito nets, we are basking in clean, pure white (hard) water, with not a black fly or mosquito intrusion anywhere.
NOW, DON’T YOU JUST WISH YOU WERE HERE?
HERE WE COME, ALONG THE ROAD TO PARADISE. FROM NOWHERE TO HERE.
DRIVE THE WHITEST AND CLEANEST CANYONS, ANYWHERE.
NO MATER WHO SAYS WHAT. I LOVE THIS COUNTRY AND IT’S WILD CLIMATE. NEVER A BORING MOMENT IS HAD.— (THE DIESEL GYPSY SAID THAT.)
