The Torngat Tale


Editor's Note - Three ACC Ottawa members journeyed deep into Newfoundland & Labrador to explore Torngat Mountains National Park this summer. There they travelled over 80km by foot and climbed several remote peaks. The following photo essay documents their time in the National Park and will hopefully inspire readers to get after their own self-driven expeditions.

For the full written story, check out the 2018 Winter issue of the Gazette - and for the all new design!
