I’m staying at Olympia Village RV Park and Campground in Waterdown, Ontario. It’s on the Niagara Escarpment. Which if my geography serves me correctly was left behind when the humongous Glaciers roared through Canada at a snails pace millions and millions of years ago. It’s part of the Canadian Shield, and with good reason.
As you drive through the country side coming up to the park, it’s flat green fields. There are horse farms, berry farms, and not too many other farms. You see, under that greenery, only about 3 inches down, is this…..

It’s like someone build a stone wall, brick by brick, laid flat and then covered it with dirt. I don’t know, but l’m guessing no one in this area has a basement.
The RV park is adding more sites to it’s roaster, and has had to dig through this with a jack hammer attached to a backhoe to make the ditches to lay the pipes for the water, electric and sewer.
Can you imagine being a pioneer a couple hundred of years ago thinking you have just staked your claim in this area, that is green and bountiful, only to find rock, after rock, after rock, after rock to infinity.
