Image Caption: STS028-152-152 Stephenville, Newfoundland, Canada August 1989
The angular looking peninsula that extends into the Gulf of St. Lawrence is west of Stephenville, one of Newfoundland's many fishing villages. Stephenville is the small light colored area along the northeast coast of St. George Bay, the larger bay south of the peninsula. The smaller bay northeast of the peninsula is Port-Au-Port Bay. The larger lighter colored areas near the coast and north of Stephenville are known as the Lewis Hills. They appear to be areas where the natural vegetation has been removed by mining, logging, or forest fires.
