Mungo sent me some pictures from the hiking trip he and Neal did in Gros Morne National Park. Apparently, Newfoundland has leviathans.
Can you tell me what this plant is?

Not my region, but it really looks like a dogwood relative, so my guess is that it's creeping dogwood, Cornus canadensis aka bunchberry.

(Also, wow, great pictures!)

Fantastic pics! There are a few ginormous bits of whale skeleton here on the north coast of California, too, and it's always startling how absolutely enormous they are.

The plant looks like dogwood to me. The leaves are right (veining and the color for the NL season), and also the way the berries are clustered, and it's native to the area.

And Neal looks a lot like my icon!

Lovely pics, thanks for sharing them. The contrast between the muchness of the beast and the tinyness of the plant is delicious.

Wow, looks like a good place to hike. I hope they knew in advance about the skeleton behemoth. (It would be very disconcerting to run into that unannounced. One might start looking around nervously for the velociraptors.)
