The Newfoundland and Labrador Minister of Tourism, Culture, Industry, and Innovation and the MHA for St. Barbe   L'Anse aux Meadows, Christopher Mitchelmore shared some astonishing photos of the Point Riche National Historic Site in Town of Port au Choix.

One of the photos showed an incredible ice wall.

The ice was pushed ashore by strong wind.

There are many people flocking to the community to see it.

Port au Choix is a peninsula on the western coast of the island of Newfoundland. Discoveries as early as 1904 provide evidence that native peoples settled here, burials, structural remains, and artifacts such as points, tools, and bones of discarded food.
