On the Beaten Path - Blackhead

On the way to Cape Spear it is easy to pass by the very tiny village of Blackhead. You see it from the roadway, just a few hundred away. There's plenty to do if you like to hike or photograph. The seaside scenery is savagely wild some days as an Atlantic Ocean vents its pent up energy that's been brewing thousands of miles ago. This day there was hardly a breeze, yet the Atlantic current put on an unwavering show of power as its watery turbines continued its work to smooth the chiseled eastern crust.
Blackhead is on the beaten path of the East Coast Trail as well. You can safely take dramatic photos from the trail, and especially if you have a zoom lens. Also from a safe distance you will likely be able to hear thunderous echos of eternal ocean smashing a tough armour of cliff.
Unstoppable power!
