Western Brook Pond
"Western Brook Pond is the modest name of the most dramatic piece of terrain in the island ( Newfoundland ) , if not in Eastern Canada. It is an immense body of water, twelve miles long, lying in a cleft that runs deep into the Long Range Mountains at one of their highest points. The mountains are split as though with an axe, and the two thousand foot cliffs drop sheer into the pond to a fathomless depth below the black water."
