The Bruce Peninsula is our next stop on our tour of Ontario, which lies between the Georgian Bay and Lake Huron. The peninsula is a popular destination for camping, nature reserves, and a bird observatory. As part of the Niagara Escarpment, it has the largest remaining area of forest and natural habitat in Southern Ontario, and also has some of the oldest trees in eastern North America. The Indigenous nation of the Saugeen Ojibway inhabited and controlled the area until the mid 19th century, with historical proof of their occupation reaching back as early as 7500 years ago.
When visiting the Bruce, be sure to check out the Grotto Caves, where you find crystal blue waters that is perfect for swimming, or exposed ocean rock to explore. With so many trails and parks to visit, there could never be a dull moment when you take the drive out to a brand new discovery!
Here are a few pictures of our previous night drive to Paris, Ontario:
I have to admit, there wasn’t a lot going on over there at 11pm, but I’ll give the benefit of the doubt for such a small town. We did manage to see the dam in the center of the town, but it was a bit tricky to catch on camera;) It’s possible we may have to revisit the town in the day to give it a second chance, but Guelph was definitely more lively around the same time the week before. I guess it all depends on the residential dynamics. We had a good time driving anyhow!
Enjoy your road trip this weekend! Happy Friday everyone!
