Gros Morne in Winter
This peak is #52 in Prominence List for Newfoundland and Labrador .Gros Morne is the second highest peak on the island of Newfoundland (not including Labrador) after Cabox (Lewis Hill). The name Gros Morne dates back to the 17th century when the French fished in the area. Gros means "big", Morne is a Creole word for small rounded mountain standing alone. Its rounded shape makes it an easy mountain to climb, but the wind and weather can be horrific near its summit.
