The Niagara Escarpment is a world biosphere. The Escarpment is like a mountain, but only with one slope down. The other side stays high. I live only 2 ultra-short blocks away, and it’s nice to hike up into the forests that slope down its side. It’s filled with flowers, trees, ferns, and wildlife. Circling above are birds of prey, and within, you can see coyotes, foxes, rabbits and deer.
