Big Ice in The Big Land

Glaciers. The very word conjures an image of beauty, slowness and a bellweather for the climate change crowd. But even Newfoundland and Labradorians consider them distant, even remote from us. Few of us know there are glaciers in Labrador, viewable in the Torngat Mountains. Yup, right here in our relative own backyard. They are the southernmost appearing glaciers and they are all ours.

They kind of add to the mystique of our ‘place’ here on the planet. So for all you considering an expensive cruise ship journey to Alaska to see beautiful glaciers, take a trek to Labrador instead. It’s just right there, sure.
