Photo: The Path Out of High Park

There aren't many places in Toronto where you can forget that you're in the middle of Toronto. It's rather a different situation than what prevails in Metro Vancouver, where you can amble into the forests around Burnaby's Deer Lake or crunch into the preserved rainforest in Stanley Park or get off a bus in North Vancouver and find stargates and DHDs behind ancient trees in Lynn Canyon. In built-up Toronto, the only spots where the city gets held in abeyance are places like the thickly-forested Nordheimer Ravine, parts of the Humber Valley along the bicycle trail, and High Park. When it was first opened, High Park was on the absolute fringe of the city - by now, of course, the city has grown around it. I took this photo of a path leading out of it up to Bloor Street West back in 2008.

  1. Ever been to the Rouge or in the Northeast part of Scarborough past the zoo? There's some genuine farmland there. I used to do tree-planting around there with the Friends of the Rouge Watershed.
