Harebell, Campanula rotunifolia

Here in Ontario the harebell is found in a wide variety of habitats- open woodlands, tallgrass prairie, dunes and open rocky areas. It can be seen all the way to the our northern borders. One of my favorite wildflowers.

Chedoke Falls Lower: Ontario Waterfalls

Lower Chedoke Falls can be visited by going from Chedoke Falls and walking downstream or by going upstream from a viewing platform on the Bruce Trail. Both are difficult. I went from Chedoke Falls downstream and required making my way down a rough gorge with no real trail. It can be done with patience and care, and the reward is an excellent waterfall. The images hardly due it justice. The blocks of rock on top are taller than a man standing.
