Canada’s Bruce Peninsula

November 6, 2009


Here’s another wonderful park. Canada’s Bruce Peninsula is a great place to hike, take a glass bottom boat to look at shipwrecks underwater, and admire the weathered rock formations that jut out of the water like sentinals.

Hiking the Bruce Trail through the woods is beautiful and memorable. Botanists go there to study unique plants found only there. The clear water off of the Bruce Peninsula makes many shipwrecks clearly visible from a glass bottom boat. Take your camera because the rock formations, part of the Niagara Escarpment, are very photogenic. I took the picture alvar on the Bruce Peninsuls, Canadaon the Bruce Peninsula. It is an alvar with its unique plant ecology.

I used this photo I took for the cover of my book, The Dynamic Great Lakes.
