    Default Trip To Mars???

    We had to make a delivery, 'bout an hours drive away, so decided to take in a few sights around local area. Who knew such places existed in Ontario?



    Martian Highway?







    ..and what it looks like as a whole. It is actually called the Cheltenham Badlands and is really as red as the pics show. If you ever get a chance to drive up here it is a must see, along with the waterfalls and ruins, at "The Forks of The Credit". (but thats another story)






    This last one was shooting into sun, but gives you a little depth of the area.

    Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!

    It certainly doesn't look like Ontario! Cool captures.

    Thanks all. Yes it is definitely a place well worth the visit and for sure to bring your camera. There are so many photo ops there, but best to go an a weekday as it is quite crowded during weekends. Also 9 am, or thereabouts, is best for morning shots, or 5pm on is my fave, as it is angled towards the setting sun actually.
    Here is a link for those that would like to know how to get there. You will not be disappointed. You can spend a whole day exploring the surrounding area and trails/cliffs/caves in nearby Rockwood and Mono Mills (best bring a flashlight if caving at Rockwood, and change of clothes), plus the old abandoned brickworks just a couple miles away, mill ruins at Forks of The Credit, and Rockwood also. etc. etc. Cheltenham Badlands Hike - Hiking trip - EveryTrail

    Very cool set, HBGirl! Well captured! The first one is amazing and very reminiscent of some places in California. Not exactly like it, but it reminds me a bit of the Death Valley Racetrack Playa.

    Neat looking spot. I like the texture as well as the color.
