Coastal Climbs

I walk on to Spectacle Head Hill on the north side of town. It's a rather easy hiking trail to the summit—a cleared dirt path cuts through rust and green brush to the top. About 30 minutes later, I'm 100 meters above sea level. Golden meadows and the calm, blue waters of North Conception Bay stretch to the horizon. The rooftops of homes are mere dots around the harbor. On the way down the hill, hikers tell me I may be able to catch sight of floating icebergs near the town of Heart's Content, about an hour northwest.
