A year in Ontario is made of moments.
Finding what’s essential in Short Hills Provincial Park.
Quiet. Ancient. Beautiful.
Making time when the time is right.
Art, history, shopping, and even green space – on a human scale.
Who knew that so close to one of the world’s biggest tourist attractions you’d find quiet green space nuzzled up to a brilliant turquoise river.
Last year I vowed to myself that I’d stop hating winter and enjoy it for what it is. It’s a work in progress, but discovering the Ganaraska Forest has been one of the jewels of the endeavour.
Because if you live in Ontario, a place like this is probably only a day-trip away. If that.
Ever glad that somewhere special is at the end of a long road?
Visiting one of the rare strongholds of a vanishing ecosystem.
When seasons are fleeting, revel in every turn.
Quiet water and ancient forests.
At the side of the road, hidden from view and not far from home, one of Canada’s jewels.
Some places are worth coming back to again and again.
