Where are we? MARS? I saw someone post a photo of themselves here this summer and I was like ummm…. is that earth? and if so, please tell me how to get here!! The answer is YES, it IS earth, and it is located in Caledon, Ontario, to be exact! Caledon is a town near Brampton/Georgetown, and is easy to get to via google maps! The exact name of this location is the "Cheltenham Badlands"
What is this, you ask? It is red clay land formations and is part of part of the local UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
This formation is mostly red in colour due to the fact that thousands of years ago there was a river running through and now that is had dried up-this is the colour that remains. (Iron Oxide Deposits)
It unfortunately was closed to the public June 2105, to protect the land, however you can still see it from the road. Before then, you were able to walk on these formations from a hiking path beside. (I mean, you are still able to hike through this trail and if you happened to slip under the fence you mayyyyy be able to still experience the Badlands for yourself-but you didn't hear that from me!)
