Cirque Mountain, Labrador # 6469

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 1974.05.30
Vantage Point: From aircraft

Caption: A view of the summit area of Cirque Mountain

PhotoDescr: Cirque Mountain, once thought to be the highest peak in Labrador, is now ranked third by most sources.

Another photo essay of Cirque Mountain shows the mountain as a whole. See Cirque Mountain in the Torngat Range. This view shows part of Cirque's summit area, which requires navigating a multitude of ridges and gullies to reach. Late May is still winter in the Torngats. I don't know which side of the mountain is seen here.

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.
