Astronaut David Saint-Jacques captured from ISS Torngat Mountains, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. This photo was taken in June 2019 and the area was still covered with snow in June.
The highest point of the Torngat Mountains is Mount Caubvick or Mont D’Iberville at 1,652m. There are no trees in the Torngat Mountains as the mountains lie in an arctic tundra climate and are above the tree line. Permafrost is continuous on the Quebec side of the border, and it is extensive but discontinuous on the eastern Atlantic side. The subarctic Torngat Mountains are the Inuit homeland, a treasure trove of the powerful stories, spirits and traditions of centuries of travellers.
The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
