The entire northern half of BC has been left out of this thread. From the prairie and oil country of the fort nelson region, to the red barren mountains north of Dease Lake, to BCs highest mountain and surrounding glaciers near the alaska yukon bc border. BC is even more diverse than what is shown.

Went out for a drive today, to see some mountains and some bison. This viewpoint is about 25 minutes southwest of Calgary.

There was a fire burning out there, which is the cause of that smoky haze in the last shot.

Some Mattawa and Algonquin shots I took last summer.

























And then some closer to home. In the valleys around Rosedale DT Toronto.

The Monteregian Hills are located southeast of Montreal. This area is relatively flat with 200-500m high hills dotting the landscape. Mount Royal is the best known of these, however here are some of the others.

My breath is always taken away with the Banff/Jasper/Lake Louise shots even after spending thousands of hours in the parks and seeing countless pictures.

The Canadian Rockies are majestically unparalleled.

From last weekend

So I just spent the weekend up in Temagami and on the way back we drove down hwy 69 along Georgian Bay.

Part of Lake Temagami. Sorry that this image is blurry but I was at the top of a fire tower alone and it was scary as hell.















Yes that's me.






The car in front of mine hit this poor little rattle snake, I witnessed it die.


French River visitor centre.








The worlds longest Snowmobile Suspension Bridge.


The French River 91ft below.






Killbear Park, best beach on the Bay. If you look at the back on the cliffs with the wind swept pines you'll see dozens of people waiting to jump off the cliffs.

That Killbear Park beach looks really nice! Even if it has an unfortunate name, hehe.

Here are some pics of my favorite area in Canada, the dry interior of BC, breaking the Great White North stereotype:

These are all from just west of Kamloops:















Pics are my own, Cheers!

Stanstead is a nice little town, I go there every once in a while since I'm from the Eastern Townships (I drive through Stanstead every time I go to the States) I am moving back there in 2 weeks and I can't wait. The town could easily pass for a New England town, it has the best stock of New England architecture I've seen in Quebec yet. The Stanstead College is my favorite


stanstead.ca

The building in the back in your picture is the Haskell Opera and Library, it belongs to the 2 countries and there is a line on the floor separating the building in two. The entrance is on the American side, so Stansteaders have to cross the border in order to go in. It is tolerated by the border patrol since the building also belongs to Canadians.

Outstanding contributions of beautiful landscapes. This (along with the Ugly Canada threads, ironically) is my fave Canadian thread.

In a week I'll be taking the Rocky Mountaineer train from Vancouver to Calgary and should have some good shots to post here.

I was looking to do this in September, the train from Vancouver to Toronto will take to long so maybe I'll just do that stretch and fly back to T.O from Edmonton.

Fun fact: That library is the only one in the United States with a front door but no books, and the only one in Canada with books but no front door.
