Northern extent?

An editor wrote to Wikimedia, ticket:2017083010008916 making the observation that the Appalacian Mountains, while stretching to Canada, reach to New Brunswick, but not to Labrador.

I looked briefly at the references provided, one of which appears to be a dead link, but did not find support for the notion that the mountains reached to Labrador.

Would someone be willing to look into this and make corrections if necessary or make sure it's supported by a reliable source?-- S Philbrick (Talk) 14:00, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Table of highest mountain peaks

An article like this one ought to contain a simple table of the highest mountain peaks in the range, starting with the highest one Mount Mitchell, and containing five to ten peaks.
Furthermore, the highest peak in West Virginia is Spruce Knob, which is measurably higher than Bald Knob. Also in the Appalachian Mountains are the highest peaks of Alabama Cheaha Mountain, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee Clingmans Dome, Kentucky, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, New Brunswick, QUEBEC, and Newfoundland. It would be nice to mention all of these. 47.215.180.7 ( talk) 18:36, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
