Wonders of the Ontario world

Earlier this week, I had explored the new Google Earth and warned myself that This may take a while.   One of the things that I enjoyed exploring was the Wonders of the Ancient and Modern world.

That was my inspiration and I thought.  Ontario doesn’t need to take a back seat the the other parts of the world.  We have lots of natural and man-made things to enjoy.  So, I sought out to see what I could see via the 3D experience.

I learned that there are better quality mapped areas within the province.   I learned that it take a fine control to rotate, zoom in and out, to get the best possible picture.  And, I learned that sometimes the best images come from Street view and, quite frankly, just from people who know how to take and share a good picture.

I’m sure that my collection isn’t inclusive and would challenge you to explore and share on your own.  This could be fun.  Some of what I chose to include may be up for debate – so debate me – and come up with something better!

Oh, and for the record, I’ve been to all these.
