Pissing Mare Falls
As I travelled by boat up Western Brook Pond, a deep land-locked fjord in Gros Morne National Park on the West coast of Newfoundland, I saw the mist from Pissing Mare Falls catching some back light. This 600 m deep fjord was carved eons ago by glaciers and once reached the ocean. It became land-locked when the land rebounded after the glaciers receeded. Although it was once salt water, the salt was gradually washed out by the numerous fresh water streams the enter the fjord from the tall rocky cliffs and it is now ultraoligotropic, containing pure fresh water.
