The range, generally steep on the coastal side and scarred by deep glaciation and faulting, reaches highland plateaus and flat-topped peaks before sloping away more gently to the east. In places deep fjords and bays cut into its base, and rivers, such as the HUMBER RIVER, flow through its valleys. GROS MORNE NATIONAL PARK, north of CORNER BROOK, contains some of the mountain range's most spectacular vistas.
