Located just north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, the Stony Mountain Penitentiary is one of Canada’s medium security prisons/institutions. When I was much younger, the limestone outcrops to the east of the Penitentiary grounds were an excellent location for finding fossils from prehistoric times. (location)
In many areas of the country the prisons and penitentiaries, such as this one, are located a bit away from the major urban centers whereas in some parts of the country such as Kingston, Ontario the gaols are part of the character of the urban surroundings.
Ron has long had an interest in photography and traveling and, in recent years, has had more time to devote to both activities. Long a Pentax user, Ron switched to Nikon gear when he went digital. The advent of the digital SLR camera, and the ease of the internet blogging process, has provided a venue for sharing his photography and travel experience at the local, national and international level.
