Photo Friday: Eastern Canadian Glaciers

Though the glaciers of the western US, western Canada and Alaska as well-known, few people are aware of the glaciers in eastern Canada, more specifically in northern Labrador. Torngat Mountains National Park contains more than 40 active glaciers. It offers a unique opportunity to discover Arctic landscapes, to see wildlife and to have contact with the indigenous peoples who have  lived here for millennia.  Parks Canada will spend the next few years preparing a long-term tourism strategy in consultation with the indigenous people of the area and the provincial government.
