Mt Nemo conservation area, Halton; Ontario CANADA

Mt Nemo conservation area has one of the best cliff ecosystems on Ontario’s Niagara Escarpment. Rich green ferns blanket limestone boulders scattered among old growth forests that are alive with jewel like birds. Crevice caves and ancient cedars, a thousand years old, can be seen all along the meandering cliff edge trail.
An interpretive lookout with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside lets visitors know why this natural environment park is worth protecting. Parking and connections to the Bruce Trail are available at this intriguing conservation area.

While I was sitting here sketching, a Turkey Vulture came and sat on the rock I was sketching.  It was so neat, and he stayed there for a good 2 minutes.  I bent down to pick up my camera to take his photo, but his mate came by, flapped her wings and they flew off..
