Mount Caubvick in the Clouds # 6422

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 1979.08.18
Vantage Point: From aircraft

Caption: Cloud (or possibly window glare) shrouds the summit of eastern Canada's highest peak.

PhotoDescr: The highest point in Canada east of the Rockies is this peak in the remote Torngat Mountains of northern Labrador and Quebec. It is the highest point in both the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and the province of Quebec. The two provinces have given it different names.

At the time this picture was taken, Caubvick was known to be the highest point in eastern Canada, but had not yet been officially named. It was known as L1.

John Folinsbee, currently a wildlife biologist for the Alberta government, worked in a similar role for several years in the late 1970s and early 1980s for Newfoundland and Labrador. The remoteness of the area required air access, and wildlife surveys were also done from aircraft.
