Beautiful Day in the Valley

One of those rare sunny winter days with fresh snow, and the temperature not too cold - though it was well below zero.  Got out to take a few pictures of the valley in the winter sun.  Below is the view from the top of the abandondoned ski club at Talisman - the local community is hoping it will soon be sold to someone who will at least do something useful with it, if not revive it.  This view looks straight east across the 7th Sideroad.

A close look at the east side of the valley, below, shows the perfectly flat Manitoulin formation, a layer of limestone in the middle of the escarpment slope - the huge cliffs of Old Baldy are off to the right of this picture, and above the Manitoulin rock layer.  It's about 1/3 of the way down the picture, with several chalets sitting along the brim of the short cliff.

Later got out for a great ski on some trails up near Meaford.  A perfect winter day that just couldn't be spent inside!
