check out my 'Magnificent Canada' series... if they're still around. I collected images mainly of relatively unknown natural wonders. Each province/territory had it's own thread.

Nice idea for a thread... snapshots of Canada! My Canada includes my neighbourhood, so I've posted a lot of pictures from Toronto's Pride Celebrations in the international Skybar if anyone is interested... link:

A few pix from there:
