City of Toronto Two views looking northerly from the Belt Line Trail overpass.  The update previous to the update when these photos through Central Toronto were taken included photos of Highway 11 between Shabaqua Corners and Atikokan in Northwestern Ontario.  I did this to highlight both the diversity of Highway 11 as it treks across Ontario, but also the diversity of Ontario itself.  The vast, vast majority of Ontario is uninhabited wilderness, yet nearly 75% of the province's residents live in urban areas such as this.
