Town of Saugeen Shores

County of Bruce
This view looks southerly towards North Bruce.  Note the shear number of wind turbines that have been erected along the Highway 21 corridor.  Highway 21 surrounding Bruce Nuclear is a very lucrative spot to build wind farms due in part to strong prevailing winds, and an existing transmission network care of Bruce Nuclear.

Approaching Allenford looking northerly (easterly) along Highway 21.  Notice the white sign indicating the radio stations that are now in range along Highway 21.  Signs like these are becoming increasingly rare along Ontario's highways.  They are relics from the time that the Ministry of Transportation had communications under its ministerial umbrella.

Looking south along Highway 21 towards the western Highway 6 junction in Springmount.  Interestingly, it would appear that at one time there was a channel for direct northbound movements along Highway 6, however, this channel has been removed, replaced with a standard right turn lane, for reasons unbeknownst to me.
