Yes , it's another Trans Lab Hwy report !

After North West River , our next order of business is to take in Muskrat Falls ; the site of a huge hydro electric project just getting under way .





Here we are leaving Goose Bay , notice the weather is much nicer than when we arrived ; no rain suits !





I'm not sure what this means , but didn't think it applied to us .



We followed a foot path for a while and it led us onto a power line .
Pat is seen here cleverly marking our entry point to the afore mentioned power line . We want to return the way we came ; we're no fools .





























See it now before it's flooded !



It's time now to hit the road for Churchill Falls .
If I remember correctly there is pavement roughly 100kms west of Goose and 20 kms east of Churchill with dirt road in between .
Below is a victim of the TLH .



This is the first day where dust was an issue .



In Churchill Falls we hoped to get a tour of the hydro electric facility there but it didn't work out , we wanted the 9:00 AM tour the next morning but they couldn't take us until 1:30 PM ; we declined .

Day 6 , we decided to go check out the Churchill River ; the source of the Churchill Falls hydro facility ; knowing it would only be a fraction of it's former self .
