what a scene!
Most people travel to the Torngats for a week or more, because of the high cost of getting there.
You can either get there by travelling through Quebec (Montreal-Kuujuaq) or from Goose Bay in Labrador.
Visit the following website for info on how to book seats on a charter that flies in & out of the park every weekend during the operating season, which is end of July to early September.
Also visit the TMNP homepage for general info about the park: http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/pn-np/nl/torngats/index.aspx
A visit to this part of the world is a once-in-a-lifetime experience...well worth the effort!
Does the shadow of the massive boulder match those of nearby rocks?
You are correct - travelling North of Nain is difficult, but not impossible. The Torngat Mountains National Park does operate a basecamp from mid-July until the end of August each year and there are chartered flights going in and out of the airstrip in Saglek, NL every week. Visit this website for more info: www.kangidluasuk.com or visit the official TMNP Parks Canada website.

This suspension bridge is not in the location that is shown on the map. It is not even located within Fundy National Park.
It is located within the Fundy Trail Parkway, which is located further West down the NB coastline. The suspension bridge traverses the Big Salmon River, which is about 10kms East of St. Martins.
You should correct this mistake, as I know some people show up at Fundy National Park looking for this bridge, only to find out it's a few hours away.
I know all of this because I worked in Fundy National Park for 6 years.
