Elora Gorge is a beautiful natural areas in the Grand River Valley. I spent a week-end there and loved it. The riverside trails on the high cliffs are amazing, the view is just stunning but the trails were not much of a challange for me (about 3 km). Far bellow, you can see the kayakers and tubers making their way through the rapids. I went kayaking and tubing while I was there and it was a lot of fun. Camping there was great, and it didn’t really feel like camping since there washrooms and drinking water taps throughout the park. My friends and I also went fishing but that was the boring part for me.

The city of Elora is small but beautiful, I ate at en amazing pub there called the Shepperd’s pub (I think) the chicken wings are just to die for.

Canadian Geese and Goslings along the Humber River, Etobicoke (James Gardens  and Etienne Brule Park, Mid-May, 2015).

The term goose applies to the female in particular, while gander applies to the male in particular. Young birds before fledging are called goslings. The collective noun for a group of geese on the ground is a gaggle; when in flight, they are called a skein, a team, or a wedge; when flying close together, they are called a plump.
