Williamson Ravine January 28, 2021

 

A day after the first real winter snow fall was a perfect day for a visit to the Williamson Ravine, while we still have access to it & while it remains intact. Soon to become a major construction zone & probably closed for any public use until that construction is over. No, they aren’t putting in condos but Metrolinx is adding another line to the tracks than run though the north end of the Ravine. For more info:

Williamson Ravine Dec 21 2020

Winter Solstice was a perfect day for a visit to the Williamson Ravine, while we still have access to it & while it remain intact. It will soon become a major construction zone & probably be closed for any public use until that construction is over. No, they aren’t putting in condos but Metrolinx is adding another line to the tracks than run though the north end of the Ravine. For more info:

Green Ravine May 03.2020

Took my monthly walk through the Williamson Ravine earlier this month. Spring has sprung thanks to rain & sun. The first day this year I wore shorts. Social distancing not to difficult. Kids love any excuse to jump in the water 🙂
