Would you catch me doing this.
A short half hour drive from home is the quaint town of Elora, a typical tourist town in Southern Ontario boasting boutiques selling all kinds of upscale kitsch, unique eating spots and lovely old homes, beautifully maintained.
Visitors flock to the town on warm autumn weekends to enjoy the last few days of Indian summer. It is perched on the edge of the Elora Gorge; a beautiful natural area where the Grand River races between 22 meter cliffs. That’s about 72 feet.
There are plenty of hiking trails, well fenced off for safety, kayaking and canoeing the rapids is a popular sport here and, for a price, you can even enjoy the thrill of zip lining across or rappelling down the cliff.
Not my idea of fun but they were lined up for a chance to try this sport. Much better to stand at the top and take pictures and then go into town for ice cream or tea and scones. Sounds much more civilized.
