Saglek Fjord, Torngat Mountains National Park, Labrador
"The Torngats speak to me. Their scale is overwhelming. Jagged peaks nearly a mile high surge up from royal fjords that bring the cold rich Labrador sea deep inland. Even in July, snow and ice cling to the deeply shadowed northern faces. It is a spiritual place. A person has no choice but to feel small here. The transience of human life is palpable. If the mountains could talk, I’m sure they would tell us that we humans really don’t matter very much, that they will still be here in cold silence long after we have gone. But while we are here together, mountains and people, we would do well to understand from them that they are the essence of wildness, a tonic for those lucky enough to be in their midst."
