Let me share a few more pictures of the road between here and Owen Sound, and help you relate to the landscape around here.
You start with a long slow rise up the hill from Georgian Bay. This is the view you see when you return to Meaford.
There are a few farms along the way, but they don't appear very prosperous.
At the other end of the drive the highway drops down off the higher bedrock of the Niagara Escarpment toward the city of Owen Sound in the distance.
Below that rocky ridge there are some more prosperous looking farms like this one, a sheep farm.
In the middle of the trip is Owen Sound's airport, the Billy Bishop Regional Airport. Billy Bishop was Canada's WWI flying ace, and was a native of Owen Sound. His home and birthplace is now a museum.
This is a quiet rural airport for smaller mostly private planes, but Owen Sound is very proud of it, and of Billy. There were a few complaints a decade or two ago when the Toronto Island airport rebranded itself as the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport - just another example of the big city trampling over rural Ontario!
