A little drive-by shooting for your viewing pleasure. It won't be long and the world will be here in Canada. (2010 Olympic Games) Many people, I believe, have misconceptions about my country, but when it comes to their 'picture' of our landscape and what it's like to drive here in the winter, I think they are 'dead' on. This was a 1.5 hour drive in Ontario yesterday. Back and forth to pick up my Daughter and Baby J; who really has become Toddler J overnight! Canada has a lot of land. A lot! It goes on for miles and miles and miles. In most cases it only takes but a few minutes outside any major city, town, village or hamlet to see this kind of landscape in the cold months. Many visitors ask 'What do you do with all this land?'. (especially the Japanese!?) Well, if it's below the permafrost, we farm, we grow, we hike, we snowmobile, we walk, we let the dogs go wild, we run, we bike...we love our land. What do you think?
