Even on hazy summer days you can see the CN Tower in the Toronto skyline. While the buildings in the downtown core are tall the CN Tower; slightly left of the core, soars above them. This photo was taken from Queenston Heights about 65 km across Lake Ontario.

Travel Theme: Still

The photo challenge at Where’s My Backpack this week is STILL. Please visit her site to join in this challenge.

With this busy time of year I crave some time where I can just be still… some peace and quiet.
