Outdoor classes ROCKS! literally; we were out looking at ROCKS and Fossils!

This past semester I took an Environmental Science course called Glacial Sediments and Stratigraphy which explores the repeated formation of large continental ice sheets over North America and Europe in the last 2.5 million years. The landscape of Ontario is a fossil landscape inherited from the last Laurentide Ice Sheet that disappeared only 10,000 years ago; much of southern Ontario is buried by glacial sediments and the Great Lakes are the direct result of glaciation. This course also reviews the cause of glaciations and their geological and geomorphological effects paying special regard to the long record of past glacial and interglacial climates preserved in the Toronto region. Part of the requirement of this course is to attend a FIELD TRIP!.... field trip? Yesssss pleasee! This 2-day field trip allowed us to explore the glacial history of Southern Ontario.

We got the chance to go to so many places including but not limited to; the Scarborough Bluff, Don Valley Brick Yard and Niagara escarpment. Staying up all night long at the hotel with the girls was definitely fun. Every time we heard weird sounds coming from outside the hotel room we would think it was a thief and wanted to stop the door with a table LOL. Girls were debating whether or not to leave the lights on, the tv on and the washroom door open LOL (just incase anything happens haha). I personally didn't care and was not afraid but it was definitely fun watching them debate =P.

Okay let's just get started with some scenery picture (click to enlarge pics) =].
