Mount Nemo XXXI.left

Burlington is just far enough south that it still has some nice colours. Unfortunately, between work and rain I didn't get to see them this year, except for last Sunday when I made time to visit a friend, and grab some pictures as well.


Mount Nemo is worth discovering because this conservation area has one of the best cliff ecosystems on Ontario’s Niagara Escarpment. Rich green ferns blanket limestone boulders scattered among old growth forests that are alive with jewel like birds. Crevice caves and ancient cedars, a thousand years old, can be seen all along the meandering cliff edge trail.


An interpretive lookout with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside lets visitors know why this natural environment park is worth protecting. Parking and connections to the Bruce Trail are available at this intriguing conservation area


This High Dynamic Range 360° panorama was stitched from 78 bracketed photographs with PTGUI Pro, tone-mapped with Photomatix, and touched up in Aperture.
