Thanks to 🔷 @casswies 🔷 at Wood View Stables, emphasis on the word view, about 45 minutes west of Toronto.
The Niagara Escarpment is a long escarpment-- ( a steep slope or long cliff that forms as an effect of faulting or erosion and separates two relatively level areas of differing elevations -- in the United States and Canada that runs predominantly east/west from New York State, through Ontario, Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois. It is composed of the Lockport geological formation of Silurian age, and is similar to the Onondaga geological formation, which runs parallel to it and just to the south, through western New York and southern Ontario. The escarpment is most famous as the cliff over which the Niagara River plunges at Niagara Falls, for which it is named.
Designated a UNESCO World Biosphere,Reserve in 1990, the Niagara Escarpment is an internationally recognized landform and is the cornerstone of Ontario’s Greenbelt. A landscape of rich biodiversity, home to hundreds of Ontario's Species at Risk, vital watersheds, agricultural areas and 450-million year old geological history, the Niagara Escarpment is a treasure to protect for future generations.
