My last day in Ontario (Oct. 30th) turned out to be a bit overcast, but it didn’t prevent us from immersing ourselves in nature with cameras in hand. Mer Bleue was the destination, just south and a little west of Orleans where I was staying.
Mer Bleue is one of several Peatlands that can be found across Canada from Coast to Coast. Peatlands cover more than 12% of Canad’s land surface, an area equivalent to the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan combined. Peatlands are in part a result of the last ice age which buried Canada 15.000 years ago.
