If there are two things that define the Owen Sound area, and the Bruce Peninsula in general, at least naturally, they are surely snow, and sedimentary rock. The former falls in tremendous quantity due to lake effect, while the latter causes it to drain very poorly, instead encouraging the spring melt to tumble gleefully down the escarpment in the direction of our basement.

Before the snow all melts, which won't be long now at this rate, I thought I should get some shots of Jones Falls and the Pottawattomi River. This is a tighter crop that features the falls more prominently.

The Pottawatomi River, about two kilometers below Jones Falls, in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada. We pass this on the way into town, if we go via Nicol's Gully, which is a sharp dip in the road, down to the bridge where this was taken, and a sometimes bit dodgy in winter.
