Toronto from the green side  
I recently came across a beautiful photograph of Toronto from the green side and wanted to share it with you. It's by a Jason Van Bruggen, who is apparently an activist for the promotion and protection of Toronto's glacial ravine system. As he notes, "over 30" of NYC's Central Park would fit into Toronto's ravines. Someone else called Toronto, topologically, "upside-down San Francisco" (for TO's ravines to SF's hills).

Toronto's ravine system even has a Wikipedia page! Who knew? Okay, yes, those of you who live there... :-)

Well, I live in Toronto and I didn't know about the Wiki page. *sheepish grin*

Unfortunately, I don't know how much of that green is still around. There's been a lot of construction recently and I think our beautiful green bits are shrinking rapidly. *sigh*

Oh, dear! I can only hope that the urban planners are moving carefully; from what I was reading, Toronto needs the drainage and wetlands to avoid flooding and manage erosion, aside from what it contributes in natural beauty.
