The Cheltenham Badlands

Its not the more famous Badlands of Alberta or South Dakota, but Ontario has the Cheltenham Badlands. It is an area that has been eroded and where the subsoil contains a large quantity of iron oxide. This gives the soil a reddish color. Their are also bluish-green bands where the groundwater has reacted with it. The Bruce Trail runs by it.

  10. Thanks Hilke,

    It was strange because I had the whole place to myself, when I expected a lot of visitors.
