Image Caption: STS056-80-10 The Avalon Peninsula

This is a detailed view of the folded landscape of the Avalon
Peninsula. Thousands of lakes (mostly snow-covered) sit between the
ridges. Numerous fjords finger inward from the coast and create deep
embayments. The Avalon Peninsula frequently marks the southern
boundary of the sea ice of the Labrador Sea. T284B
