Captured in the early morn, this is one of the many steep cliffs of Whiteshell Provincial Park in Eastern Manitoba, Canada just off PTH44. NOTE: This is three images merged into one, using Canon Photostitch
This park in the Heart of the Canadian Shield, also called the Laurentian Plateau, or Bouclier Canadien (French), is a massive geological shield covered by a thin layer of soil that forms the nucleus of the North American or Laurentia craton. It is an area mostly composed of igneous rock which relates to its long volcanic history. It has a deep, common, joined bedrock region in eastern and central Canada and stretches North from the Great Lakes to the Arctic Ocean, covering over half of Canada; it also extends south into the northern reaches of the United States. Population is scarce, and industrial development is minimal, although the region has a large hydroelectric power potential.
The Canadian Shield was the first part of North America to be permanently elevated above sea level and has remained almost wholly untouched by successive encroachments of the sea upon the continent. It is the Earth’s greatest area of exposed Archaean rock.
