Indian Burying Place

A recent blogger thought I was being too 'verbose' and using grand words. Perhaps I should back up and tell you my academic background is in physical geography. And so I will continue to use terms such as erratics, pillow lavas, and other beauties of the landscape. But I'll also post something of the cultural landscape. Last month I had the opportunity to visit Indian Burying Place, an abandoned community on the isolated and exposed western shore of Notre Dame Bay in Newfoundland. You can read my article on same, and other resettled communities, in an upcoming issue of Kanawa (Canada's Paddling magazine).
