Sovereignty for a strip of majesty? Souveraineté pour une bande de majesté ?

If you journey to Trout River and pop into the local Interpretation Centre, a small museum and hosting place for the popular “Passing the Time in Trout River” annual musical production, you might hear a story of a brave woman who risked life and limb to save a mother and child in a brutal winter storm. The small school that holds grades right through from primary to grade twelve is named after Nurse Jakeman who really was the Florence Nightingale of this outpost fishing village. The setting of this gripping story is a passageway between the coastal communities, Trout River and Woody Point, known as “the Gulch” or “Route 431”.

Si vous vous rendez à Trout River et que vous entrez dans le centre d’interprétation local, un petit musée et un lieu d’accueil pour la populaire production musicale annuelle « Passing the Time in Trout River », vous entendrez peut-être l’histoire d’une femme courageuse qui a risqué sa vie et ses membres pour sauver une mère et c hild dans une tempête d’hiver brutale. La petite école qui détient des notes jusqu’à la 12e année est nommée d’après l’infirmière Jakeman qui était vraiment le Florence Nightingale de ce village de pêcheurs avant-poste. Le cadre de cette histoire captivante est un passage entre les communautés côtières, Trout River et Woody Point, connu sous le nom de « Gulch » ou « Route 431 ».

It is ironic, pardon the pun – for the hills are laden with iron and copper – that the most breathtaking stretch of hiway in western Newfoundland is also dangerous enough to keep even police and ambulance away on stormy nights. You might notice long poles marked with reflective tape along one or either side of the pavement. These are to guide the way for those who venture through on nights when the road is a sea of snow and the wind a vengeful spirit out to mesmerize and confuse the way of the winding road. Mountains may loom on either side but in the midst of the pelting hail, drifting snow or engulfing fog the mountains disappear altogether.

Perhaps it is the spirits of the dinosaurs at play. In the summer you can get acquainted with their geological remains – or at least the rocks known as Serpentine, which look very much like lizard scales, and crumble into yellow powder when touched too roughly. There are also local tales of horses and Newfoundland ponies who perished because their owners failed to build them shelters, expecting them to instinctively find a place to hide from the cold and wind like the moose and caribou. Perhaps it was because they drank from a stream too full of minerals or nibbled on a plant too strong of poison.

Peut-être que ce sont les esprits des dinosaures en jeu. En été, vous pouvez faire connaissance avec leurs vestiges géologiques – ou du moins les roches connues sous le nom Demétine, qui ressemblent beaucoup à des écailles de lézard, et s’effondrer en poudre jaune lorsqu’il est touché trop grossièrement. Il y a aussi des histoires locales de chevaux et de poneys de Terre-Neuve qui ont péri parce que leurs propriétaires n’ont pas réussi à leur construire des abris, s’attendant à ce qu’ils trouvent instinctivement un endroit où se cacher du froid et du vent comme l’orignal et le caribou. Peut-être était-ce parce qu’ils buvaient d’un ruisseau trop plein de minéraux ou grignotaient une plante trop forte de poison.

Il est ironique, pardonnez le jeu de jeu – car les collines sont chargées de fer et de cuivre – que le tronçon le plus époustouflant de l’autoroute dans l’ouest de Terre-Neuve est aussi assez dangereux pour éloigner même la police et l’ambulance les nuits orageuses. Vous remarquerez peut-être de longs poteaux marqués de ruban réfléchissant le long d’un ou de l’autre côté de la chaussée. Ceux-ci sont de guider le chemin pour ceux qui s’aventurent à travers les nuits où la route est une mer de neige et le vent un esprit vengeur à hypnotiser et confondre le chemin de la route sinueuse. Les montagnes peuvent se profiler de chaque côté, mais au milieu de la grêle, de la neige à la dérive ou du brouillard englouti, les montagnes disparaissent complètement.

Only hikers and wild animals dot these hills now. They seem empty, except for the rivers; those are off limits to fishing, however. Gros Morne National Park has made it a UNESCO World Heritage site and it draws people from all over the globe. No photograph can do it justice. It is a spectacle you must breathe in, touch with your hands and see with your own eyes. To say it is valuable and remarkable merely because the earth’s mantle rises up through the ground here, is to understate the magnificence of this corridor between mountains.

Seuls les randonneurs et les animaux sauvages parsèment ces collines maintenant. Ils semblent vides, sauf pour les rivières; ceux-ci sont toutefois interdits à la pêche. Le parc national du Gros-Morne en a fait un site du patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO et attire des gens du monde entier. Aucune photographie ne peut lui rendre justice. C’est un spectacle que vous devez respirer, toucher avec vos mains et voir de vos propres yeux. Dis-le est précieux et remarquable simplement parce que le manteau de la terre s’élève à travers le sol ici, c’est sous-estimer la magnificence de ce couloir entre les montagnes.

Most important thing to remember is ---the solvency test has shifted from balance sheet to cash flow.
