Churchill Falls

Churchill Falls and Bowdoin Canyon, central Labrador.
The falls and the gorge were cut by headward migration of the Churchill River as it gradually cut down into the central Labrador plateau. This view was taken in 1969 prior to diversion of much of the water to the hydroelectric plant.
