canadian shield, originally uploaded by 416style.

Driving up north on Thursday and back today (which is why there was no entry for Friday) we were in the Canadian Shield region – also known as the Precambrian Shield – which is a massive geological shield made of granite that covers about half of Canada, Greenland, and some of the northern US, totalling an area of 4.4 million square kilometers (1.7 million square miles).

The landscape is mostly made up of pines, lakes, bogs, and rock, as you can see in this lovely photo.

Enjoy today’s photo! If you like the photo, please drop a comment to the original photographer at Flickr.

    le sniff, that reminds me that I didn’t get to my parents’ place for Thanksgiving. They live near the Laurentians, in western Quebec. Happy Thanksgiving!
