I visited both the North Shore (Turtle Point Provincial Park – ON) and South Shore (Fairhaven Beach State Park, NY) of Lake Ontarion the smallest of the Great Lakes. In the Huron language, the name Ontarí’io means “Lake of Shining Waters”. The last in the Great Lakes chain, Lake Ontario serves as the outlet to the Atlantic Ocean via the Saint Lawrence River. It is the only Great Lake not to border the state of Michigan.
I have spent the last 7 weeks around the Great Lakes. I am going to miss them as I head east to New England and eventually the Atlantic Coast.
