Now I know I keep coming back to this, but you see those jagged peaks to the left middle, anywhere else in the world they would not only have names given to them but there would be myths and legends about them, heroic deeds performed, trolls defeated, something or other turned to stone etc. etc.
Here in the High Arctic though because there is an almost endless supply of mountainous features and far less people to see and recognize and make stories up about them, they just go un-named.
