Thousands Islands, Gananoque, Ontario, Canada 04

Description : The thousand Islands actually number 1865 in a 50 mile span between Kingston and Brockville. Some are not much more than rocky shoals, while others are very large, such as Wolfe Island, 27 miles long by 9 miles wide; and Howe Island, 9 miles long by 3 miles wide. Both of these islands have year round residents and are serviced by ferry boats from the mainland.
St. Lawrence River - The St. Lawrence River is one of the great rivers of the world, stretching for 1,247 Kilometers,775 miles.
The River starts where Lake Ontario empties and flows northeast to the Atlantic Ocean. It carries the fresh water of the Great Lakes
to the Atlantic and provides access to the heart of North America. The upper St. Lawrence is graced by pink granite and limestone
islands, large and tiny, for a distance of sixty miles. The River drains the largest fresh water source on the face of the Earth, The Great Lakes.
