End of the Rails - SkyWatch Friday

This is part of a series of posts of a trip across Canada by rail that began in Vancouver, BC. As the trip comes to an end the sun finally struggles to make an appearance just north of Toronto.
Our last day of travel is Ontario's near north and cottage country, this is south of McTier near Georgian Bay.
Not looking too much like summer near Washago, Ontario!

I dosed off through the suburbs but got the Bloor Street Viaduct over the Don Valley.

And finally downtown Toronto with it's landmark CN Tower, the world's tallest free standing structure from it's completion in 1975 until 2007 at 1815 ft. The sun was finally making it's appearance and it was spring-like out!

For more great skies from around the world go to SkyWatch Friday.

I enjoyed your recent posts. Train stations and their adjacent hotels are an interesting part of history. The Station Hotel in Kitchener where I live burned down a few years ago. It was never rebuilt. I have driven under that Bloor Viaduct more times that can be counted.

Plenty of gray skies, but really enjoyable to see your trip - espeically loved the Yellowhead. The west is best!!

Those grey skies look very familiar. Have enjoyed following you on your trip.

Thanks so much for all the glimpses of your transcontinental journey. You must really feel as if you've 'experienced' Canada - so much better than a plane journey.

A wonderful series. Thank you. The skies are cloudy but lovely, and oh, so cold looking!

I love the third photo of the building across the water. Hope you're having fun.

Oh I so love this and the previous ones in your Via Rail Trans Canada series. I so love seeing these photos as I dearly want to do this trip myself. A chipped wheel indeed and all that ice and snow on the wheel assemblies???

Maybe I'll plan to do it in summer.
I look forward to reading about your adventures in TO. Perhaps we could do coffee Downtown sometime.
