My mind’s turning increasingly “north” as weather improves here in Canada.
We have such a short hiking season, every day is precious.
Rogier of Bluepeak.net alerted me to Torngat in Labrador, Quebec.
Canadian Geographic of May/June 2007 …
The article includes an online in-depth backgrounder. This is definitely a must-visit park, if one can manage the polar bears, who seem to be as thick as rabbits in the park.
I see Labrador as one of Canadaâ€™s hottest new destinations – Iâ€™ll have to find a way to get there.
That article describes a kayak tour.
But there is unusual, challenging climbing and hiking, as well. A number of outfitters can arrange a trip there.
The Torngat Mountains are entirely above the Arctic tree-line so there’s nothing to obstruct your views. (Or block the cold wind.)
