Tip of Canada : Point Pelee - Globetrotting Diaries

This week I'm taking you to the Southern most tip of Canada - Point Pelee. We visited point Pelee during our trip to Canada. We stayed with my Uncle there, this was the first trip that we took during our visit.

Point Pelee National Park is a national park located in Essex County in southwestern Ontario, Canada where it extends into Lake Erie. It consists of a peninsula of land, mainly of marsh and woodland habitats, that tapers to a sharp point as it extends into Lake Erie.

Point Pelee is the southernmost point of mainland Canada, and is located on a foundation of glacial sand, silt and gravel that bites into Lake Erie. This spit of land is slightly more than seven kilometres long by 4.5 kilometres (2.8 mi) wide at its northern base. The park was established in 1918, Point Pelee  is the lowest point in Canada.
