Description

Gold Harbour is a beautiful sight even without the help of this well-placed rainbow. The name probably came from the iron pyrite, also known as fools' gold, that is found in the rocks here.This is a place of considerable geologic upheaval where the Cumberland Bay Formation rocks meet the Sandebugten Formation rocks. As a result, there are some wild rock formations by the Gold Head cliffs on the left of this panorama. More recently, the glaciers are retreating at a remarkable pace. I was a surprised by how much the glaciers have diminished since my guidebooks were published.
