It’s almost Christmas at the Alexander Muir Park in late December 2012 and while there are signs of Fall, there still are a few flowers showing their colors in the warm weather.

He was the composer of The Maple Leaf Forever, which he wrote in October 1867 to celebrate the Confederation of Canada. Toronto, Ontario. Nikon D800e and 70-200 VR II lens with TC 2.0 III.

Some Fossils at Scarborough Bluffs at Bluffer’s Park

December 2012 at the Scarborough Bluffs. Some fossils in the rocks used for the breakwater in Bluffer’s Park. Toronto, Ontario. “The layers of sand and clay exposed in these cliffs display a remarkable geological record of the last stages of the Great Ice Age. Unique in North America, they have attracted worldwide scientific interest. The first 46 metres (150 feet) of sediments contain fossil plants and animals that were deposited in a large river delta during the first advance of the Wisconsinan glacier some 70,000 years ago. They are covered by 61 metres (200 feet) of boulder clay and sand in alternating layers left by four subsequent advances and retreats of ice. The final withdrawal of the glacier occurred some 12,000 years ago.” Toronto History.
