These pages– that chronicled my circling of the Great Lakes a few years ago and other plans–will be updated in Spring 2019. But in September 2019, I will be taking VIA Rail from Windsor to Toronto, Montreal, and Quebec City. Plans include getting out to islands and viewing Beluga whales while in Quebec City. Can hardly wait! (updated 3/20/19)

I’ll be heading all along the St. Lawrence River from Lake Ontario to the Atlantic Ocean. I’ll be stopping in Kingston, Gananoque, Brockville, Ogdensburg, Massena, Cornwall, Montreal and Quebec. World Atlas provides this “big picture” of the Great Lakes (below) with the St. Lawrence River section noted. The dotted red line indicates the international boundary.
Of primary interest is the state of the Beluga whales of the St. Lawrence. These small white whales live year round in the St. Lawrence near the Atlantic and have extremely high levels of cancer from pollution.
