In geology, bedrock refers to native consolidated rock that is underlying the surface material.  In most places, above the bedrock is broken and weathered unconsolidated rock in the form of soil or rock fragments.  Bedrock means the solid bottom layer of rock beneath our feet.  

Geologists are the scientists who study what the Earth is made of.  Since cars like to travel on relatively flat surfaces, geologists are often called upon to take core samples of bedrock beneath the proposed pathway of a new road.  They need to examine what the rock is made of in order to assist with building.  Often, the bedrock needs to be blasted away to make room for a highway.  This is often the case with roads passing through the Canadian Shield .  Road workers drill into the bedrock and blast away rock that is in the way of construction.  Next time you travel beside any road that has been cut through rock, look at the cliffs you are driving through for the long drill marks in the rock.

The Canadian Shield, also known as the Laurentian Plate au , is a huge U-shaped geological shield made up of ancient rock that circles the Hudson Bay region.  The Shield covers more than half of Canada and extends into the United States as the Adirondack Mountains and the Superior highlands.  There is evidence of movement upon the rock by continental ice sheets.  There is little soil upon the rock and drainage is poor.  The southern portion of the Shield has many lakes and forests, while the northern portion is covered with tundra. From a geological perspective, the Shield is made up of Precambrian crystalline igneous ad high-grade metamorphic rocks.

Bedrock is often used as stone landmarks by native peoples.  In the images below, granite has been used to form an "inuksuk"  (plural "inuksuit") - also spelled "inukshuk".  These stone markers may have been used to designate travel markers, fishing spots, camps, hunting spots or food sources, or special places.  Today, many inuksuk can be seen along the highways of Northern Ontario, built by tourists visiting the area.

Scenery & Landscapes


 

 

 

 

“There is a serene
and settled majesty
to woodland scenery
that enters into 
the soul and delights
and elevates it,
and fills it with
noble inclinations.”  

~ Washington Irving ~

 

 

 

 

“I went to the woods
because I wished
to live deliberately,
to front only
t he essential facts
of life and see 
if I could not learn
what it had to teach,
and not,
when I came to die,
discover that I 
had not lived.”  

~ Henry Davie 
Thoreau ~

 

 

 

 

“Keep your faith
in all beautiful things.
In the sun 
when it is hidden.
In the spring 
when it is gone.” 

 
~ Roy Rolfe 
Gilson ~
