Ontario

 
 

I've divided this section about the province where I live into six geographical parts.

Toronto is the capital of Ontario, Canada's largest city, and my home.  Photos in this section show some of its major landmarks, like the CN Tower, some of the parks and recreation areas along its Lake Ontario shoreline, and a few other modern and older highlights that have caught my attention.

Southern Ontario is where most of the province's population lives.  I've chosen to feature Stratford, a small city with beautiful parks and an internationally renowned theatre company, three places along the north shore of Lake Ontario, and images of autumn colours.

The Central Ontario section features the huge Algonquin Park, Canada's first provincial park and a pioneer in developing visitor services and preservation programs.  Also: fall colours in the picturesque Muskoka and Haliburton regions and in towns on the Trent-Severn Waterway.

The Georgian Bay section includes lake and cottage country scenery, unique geological formations, and two historical village recreations.

South-Eastern Ontario is noted for its Thousand Islands vacation area and the St. Lawrence Seaway.  This region has a colourful and important history, as reflected at Upper Canada Village and at Fort Henry in Kingston.

The Northern Ontario section contains images from two rail adventures, a fall day trip in the forest north of Algonquin from North Bay to Temagami, and a six-day expedition to Moosonee and Moose Factory on the south shore of James Bay.

 

Links to the six section pages are at the left.  Direct links to the six Picture Files are below the Sample Images. 
A combined Table of Contents is provided below that.
