Ever since I can remember I've heard the comment that there is "no difference" between Canadians and Americans. I respectfully beg to differ as there is a difference on so many levels! We have unique Canadian culture consisting of Canadianisms, a Canadian perspective on world events, Canadian cuisine as well as products and foods only available in Canada. This blog is dedicated to celebrating all things Canadian from "my perspective" as a Canadian. Please enjoy your visit and be sure to visit often.

Americans should never underestimate the constant pressure on Canada which the mere presence of the United States has produced. We're different people from you and we're different people because of you. Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is effected by every twitch and grunt. It should not therefore be expected that this kind of nation, this Canada, should project itself as a mirror image of the United States.

Bruce Trail Northern Terminus Cairn

Bruce Trail Northern Terminus Cairn
June 14, 2006

We have hiked portions of the Bruce Trail mainly between Tobermory, Ontario and Lion's Head, Ontario on the Bruce Peninsula several times.  We tend to focus on the trail portion that wanders through Bruce Peninsula National Park near the Cypress Lake Campground.  The trail can be rather challenging in this area.  The guys with kids in tow have hiked the trail from Tobermory to Cypress Lake Campground which is about a 15 km challenging hike that takes a good portion of the day.  The Bruce Trail Northern Terminus Cairn is located on Bay Street overlooking Little Tug Harbour in the Village of Tobermory.  The Bruce Trail is a hiking trail that follows Niagara Escarpment from Queenston to Tobermory in Ontario.  The trail is approximately 800 km long and traverses in some spots over privately owned land and farmland in central and southern Ontario.  The trail itself ranges from being quite challenging with a fair amount of climbing to areas of low, flat terrain.  The southern terminus cairn is located in the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake in Queenston Heights Park.
