We’re all fa­mil­iar with the Norse god Thor, and, if you’re a Marvel Comics fan, you’ll know the char­ac­ter of Thor and the fic­tional city of As­gard. But did you know we have a Mount Thor and a Mount As­gard right here in Canada? Both peaks are lo­cated in Auyuit­tuq Na­tional Park, Baf­fin Is­land, Nu­navut. In fact, Mount Thor has the great­est purely ver­ti­cal drop on Earth, at 1,250 me­tres! Climbers from around the world have been tack­ling th­ese im­pres­sive sum­mits for decades now.
