  STS085-501-139 George River, Quebec, Canada August 1997 The northward flowing George River is located southeast of Ungava Bay in extreme northeast Quebec. The George River winds through a glaciated wilderness that consists of low hills and a multitude of lakes (dark features of various sizes and shapes). Continental icesheets scoured the terrain thereby producing depressions that have subsequently filled with water which appear as numerous dark lakes. Shallow soils, bare rock surfaces, and year round cold temperature produce sparse vegetation throughout the region. Although rapids break the course of the George River, many adventurous canoeists have traversed the river all the way north to the estuary that empties into Ungava Bay.
