Winter beauty on the Bruce Peninsula

While summer is a popular tourist season in Bruce County, there are days all year round when the beauty of the County can be explored and appreciated.

The Bruce Peninsula has seen incredible growth in tourist numbers throughout the summer months but, for local residents, winter is often the time to enjoy the quiet solitude of the scenery.  The Bruce Peninsula National Park is part of the Niagara Escarpment, a huge forested ridge that runs through southern Ontario. The Grotto in the park is a limestone cave overlooking Georgian Bay’s crystal clear waters.

Doug and Kathy Lein recently took advantage of a spring-like day on Friday, December 4th, to hike the Peninsula near the Grotto.  Doug Lein is a retired Saugeen Shores Police officer and Kathy is a long-time volunteer at the Bruce Peninsula National Park.
