Ausable Chasm Field Trip, June 2015

The Chasm

Just after the last Ice Age (Pleistocene) and 15,000+ years in the making...

there was a chasm.


Before the first flight at Kitty Hawk...
Before the first World War...
Before there were theme parks and roller coasters...
Before the Winter Olympic Games were created...
there was Ausable Chasm.
