Cheltenham Badlands

Cheltenham Badlands

1501-1901 Olde Base Line Rd, Caledon, Ontario

Les Cheltenham Badlands sont un exemple de badlands, qui est une région dans lequel le sol s’est érodé à un tel point ou les roches sont exposées. Peu de plantes peuvent pousser dans ces régions. Cet exemple particulier de badlands provient des practices agricoles contestables des années 1930, qui as causé le schiste Queenston (argile rouge) de s’exposer.

    The Cheltenham Badlands are truly striking. You're driving through country land, when suddenly there's this pocket of Badlands. It's incredible to see. The first time I visited as a kid, you were still able to walk on them, which I now know just helps erode them further, but it was a very cool experience nonetheless.

    This image is about loneliness in a time of joy. It shows Cheltenham Badlands, which consists of an area of soil erosion and poor farming practices, but the dirt is red underneath the snow, and a sight to see. My mom took me there after a three hours of driving to help me release stress after I had been battling with chronic bouts of mild depression, and we laughed a lot. She likes to take me places in the car, far away from home because home reminds me of pain a lot. Of tears that have been shed or hidden. But this day was fun. It was extremely cold outside and my mom and I laughed at how my brother trembled from the chill. I felt a little like the place could be more fun if my father was around, but instead I thought that he was watching over us from the beautiful clouds and sunlight. I don't want this to sound like a sap story. Because it's not. It's about a time where days are cold and my life feels colder, but there's still warmth somewhere. And I just have to push through the bumps and hills and tears to get there. But right now, it's cold. Canada itself is cold. But I don't think any place could have shown me more warmth, even when I feel lost and cold here. Because when I went to Korea, the place that I was born in, the smog filled my senses and I could hardly breathe. But here in Canada, there's endless land. Endless fields. Endless skies. And I guess endlessness is a good things sometimes, even though it's usually the biggest thing I lament over. It was cold. But I can't imagine a warmer day, because my mom smiled.

    The first time I came to the Badlands was on a field trip when I was in elementary school, to learn about physical geography in our local area. I absolutely love coming to the Badlands because they are so beautiful, and so unexpected! The surrounding area is lush and green during the spring and summer, and is wonderful farmland! If you aren't expecting to see these hills, it's as if they come out of nowhere. I've heard people compare them to what they think Mars might look like, and I can see where they get that idea from.
