Niagara Escarpment



The Niagara Escarpment was formed by an erosion resistant, dolomite "cap" atop softer, less erosion resistant rock.


The dolomite and associated limestone are compacted coral formed in tropical seas several hundred million years ago.  That was before humans evolved so the warm climate cannot be laid at the feet of human activities.

Presumably, the Niagara Escarpment would be a good place to grow truffles due to the calcium rich soils.

Hiking is both scenic and challenging.  Personally, I would love to hike the Bruce Peninsula and Manitoulin Island.

That is either a good sized Northern Pike or a shipwreck
