Lake Wanapitei

Lake Wanapitei is located northeast of Sudbury, Ontario, however it is within the city limits of the Greater Sudbury region.  This is from a small park at the extreme south end w/ cement barriers that had inscriptions from 1952 & 1953.  When you look at a satellite view of the lake, the northern shore has a distinct circular appearance, to which the lake indeed occupies a former meteor impact crater that occurred 37 million years ago.  It was confirmed in the mid-1970s by the presence of a rock called suevite, which contain bits of dark glass which are common around impact structures.  The lake also occupies part of the Sudbury Basin, which itself was formed from a comet impact 1.849 billion years ago & today produces the world's largest nickel deposits.  The Canadian Shield is an area of ancient bedrock, all of which were under large ice sheets during the Ice Age.  Today many visible impact craters are still visible in the region from Saskatchewan to Quebec, almost all lake-filled.

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
