Misery Bay

I hiked the trails in 
on Manitoulin Island.

This park has some of the best examples of alvar habitat, these large, exposed areas of limestone.

Some still bear the scrape marks from the glaciers.

The horizontal lines are glacial scrapes

This is a rare "puddingstone" among all the limestone

The limestone along the shore has been shaped by Lake Huron

Many fossilized corals are exposed in the limestone

Here's a large chain coral

Limestone flats = Alvar
