Tourist in the Torngats
The Telegram tagged along recently on a tour to the Torngat Mountains National Park base camp offered by the Government of Nunatsiavut to provincial Minister of Aboriginal Affairs Nick McGrath. The following are photos taken during that single-day, fly in and fly out visit. While the landscape leading to the park is impressive, Parks Canada rep Gary Baikie said the greatest wonders are held for the most adventurous, deep within the park grounds. — Photos by Ashley Fitzpatrick/The Telegram with iceberg photo courtesy of Jason Miles
