My wife and I found a beautiful rugged hiking trail and river system near Belfountain, Ontario. I will share a series of images here for those of you who appreciate tress and such.

@Denny Jump: Hiking spots abound in Ontario, all within an easy drive of my Elora dn Toronto homes, so we take full advantage of it. Thanks a lot, Denny. I went with a faux tilt-shift on this for a dreamlike vibe.

That looks as though it would have a nice sway to it as you cross :) Very inviting. An experience that has stuck with me for many years was crossing a very simple suspension bridge while trekking in Nepal. It was over fast flowing water and consisted of two chains from which hung metal U's in the bottom of which were a few random planks. Everything moved. There was no fixed point anywhere and it required extreme concemtratiion and very careful foot placement to cross it. Worth it though for an unforgettable memory :)

@grouser: I envy you that awesome experience. This bridge was closed for the winter season (a bit early, I might add) and we vowed to return in Spring for a walk across it. I don't think it will compare to the drama of your own experience, but perhaps the photographic possibilities will be fine. Thanks, mister g.

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

It seems to be a very pleasant and peaceful place for the hike . I looked on the Internet for more linformations ! I like your " tilt-shift " effect, it's very smooth and dreamy !

@Anna Cherer: It took under an hour to drive from Elora, and we plan to go back many times because we only explored a section of it and the sun was going to go down. Thanks a lot, Anna.

Don from Spokane, United States

A fine picture of this bridge which also shows the waterfall. A successful picture.

An excellent vantage point from which to capture these beautiful river falls!! I love how they're capped on the ends by great colors.

@Steven: In typically understated Canadian fashion, I am finding these hidden gems all over the region of Ontario where I live. Thanks !
