Gananoque and 1,000 Islands…

The Thousand Islands are an archipelago of 1,864 islands that straddles the Canada-US border in the Saint Lawrence River as it emerges from Lake Ontario. They stretch for about 80 km downstream from Kingston, Ontario.  The 1,864 islands range in size from over 40 square miles to those occupied by a single residence – or uninhabited outcroppings of rocks that are only home to waterfowl. To count as one of the Thousand Islands, land within the river channel must have at least 1 square foot of land above water level year-round, and support at least two living trees.  Tour – Video Link HERE.
