    This is Gros Morne Park, Newfoundland Canada, in the area called the Tablelands. For some reason, my camera just would not work properly while I was there. It was very windy, and it wouldn't stay still on the tripod.





    The Tablelands is famous among geologists because it provides evidence on the surface of the theory of plate tectonics. As this is rock which is normally not seen on the surface, and is usually the planetary upper mantel.

    I had my eyebrows waxed last week .. I'm feeling a bit better now that they're not as out of control, but I'd still like to get them thinner.

    I can see why so many Scots emigrated there. It's like home, but even more bleak.

    East of Oregon is southern Idaho...and I have the dubious pleasure of having lived there as well.

    I've driven through southern Idaho, along the Snake River valley. What I saw there was nothing on the high desert in eastern Oregon. That desert in Oregon is probably the most barren terrain I've ever seen. But I don't claim to be all that well-traveled. I do hope to see Antarctica one day, and it just doesn't get much more barren than that on Earth's surface.

    I'm sorry, but I cannot accept that it is possible for terrain to be bleak below the 45th parallel. It is merely desolate, which is not the same thing.

    I’m almost certain Scotland is mostly bleaker than any place in the continental US.

    Scotland isn't big enough to be genuinely bleak.

    To be fair, most of the island isn't that bleak. Although it's a matter of degree. Although the far north of the island does look like this:




    And fishing is about the only viable way for most people to make a living.

    She's in Nova Scotia, which is not where Cutlass was.

    Central Nova Scotia is quite a bit less bleak than that. Although it heads in that direction as you go further north. And that area is even more common for Scots descent people than Newfoundland is.

    That is covered with green plants! You guys really don't grasp what bleak is all about. You need to spend some time in the desert learning all the different words for brown.
