Bruce Peninsula National Park

Cliffs in the Park

Cliffs overlooking Georgian Bay in Bruce Peninsula National Park, June 2013.

The Niagara Escarpment in Ontario, Canada is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.  The Escarpment runs from Lake Ontario in the south over 700 kilometres to the most northerly part of the Bruce Peninsula.  On the Bruce Peninsula, where we were last week, we went to the National Park that’s part of that reserve.  We took a short walk up the Georgian Bay hiking trail on our first day.  These photos are of the rock cliffs overlooking Georgian Bay  with a view across Indian Head Cove of The Grotto, a very popular site with visitors.  On the deeply engraved rocks are very old small cedar trees and other plants hardy enough to live in this environment of wind, rock and cold winters.  

The water here looks tropical in its lovely pale turquoise near the shore, but it was only around 9 or 10 degrees Celsius when we were there.

    Lovely…I have been swimming at the Grotto several times…never warms up! The first few seconds are hell but then you adjust…so beautiful in those clear “tropical” waters!
