The Canadian Shield is a large geographic area (approx. 4.8 million square kilometers) in eastern and central Canada that stretches North from the Great Lakes to the Arctic Ocean covering half of Canada and extending south to the Northern US.  It is also known as the Precambrian or Laurentian Shield and is called the Shield for short.  

The area is mostly composed of igneous rocks.  Because of its terrain, the area is sparsely populated and the rich minerals make mining the area very lucrative. The surface of the Shield has a very thin layer of soil lying over bedrock  - as a result the drainage in the area is poor.   The area contains marshes, bogs and thousands of lakes.  The many bare outcroppings of bedrock make for beautiful scenery and the area is often painted by artists including the Group of Seven.  Parts of the Shield  are covered by large boreal forests that support natural ecosystems as well as a logging industry.  The largest mining town in the northern area of Ontario is Sudbury, south of which most of these images have been taken.

“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 ~
