The Schnauzer's were looking for a way to put out a short series of caches in this part of the county, and our "Great Lakes Tributes" will do just that. Nothing difficult about these caches, just plain and simple park and grabs. These may be a little touger to tackle during the winter months. You shouldn't have too much trouble with muggles, though there are some farmsteads nearby so you may want to be on the lookout for them if they're out in their fields.

Lake Ontario is the smallest of the five Great Lakes and is home to Canada's largest city, Toronto and the CN Tower, North America's tallest free-standing structure. If you stand on the south shore of Lake Ontario and look north at several different viewpoints, you will be able to see the Toronto skyline from there, 30 miles across the lake. Meteorologists and Hydrologists have stuided many things about this lake, including drainage rates compared with other lakes. If there was no rainfall on Lake Ontario, it would take it 9 years to drain completely. Compare this to Lake Superior, which would take nearly 300 years to drain. Lake Ontario is the shallowest of all the lakes as well as the smallest in surface area and volume. Several major cities, including Toronto, Buffalo and Rochester, New York are on the coast of this lake. Niagara Falls and the river that produces it flow south out of Lake Erie into Lake Ontario. This is the final stop before entering the St. Lawrence Seaway which leads to the Atlantic Ocean.
