Carden memories come to an end & Niagara Falls

My summer field season concluded yesterday. I am now in my friend's home in Ontario before I fly back to B.C. on Saturday. There are many memories, photos, thoughts, emotions, and experiences from the last 4.5 months that I would like to share, but now they remain unorganized in my head. Hopefully, I will be able to share them as time progresses.

Here are some photos from the last few days on the field site and last boat rides on Lake Dalrymple.

Orange Sulphurs (Colias eurytheme)

A couple of photos that I forgot to upload from Algonquin.

Ox-eyed Daisy (Chrysanthemum leucanthemum)

Common Garter Snake (Thamnophis sirtalis)

Fireweed (Epilobium angustifolium)

Anyways, yesterday my friend drove me to Niagara Falls and I had the chance to see one of the seventh wonders in the world. And it is indeed a wonder!

This is definitely a place I would visit again the next time I come back to Ontario.

Today, we went to the Royal Ontario Museum. Maybe I'll get a chance to post some pictures tomorrow.
