How early would you get up to catch a beautiful sunrise? This Ontario moment as seen by @primeseventythree has us setting our alarms a little earlier: "My alarm went off at 4:45. I’m not used to being active this early, and as eager as I was to morning hike up a nearby trail along the sleeping river, the thought of moving was pretty daunting. However as soon as I laid my eyes on that beautiful orangey-red sky, painted in bold strokes of clouds I instantly felt my energy perk up a few notches. The sky was waking up to a copper glow pushing out dark, deep shadows of the night to make room for the new day. As the sun was just picking over the distant trees I’ve pressed the shutter preserving a memory of this beautiful sunrise."⁣ ⁣ 📸@primeseventythree⁣ 📍 @StJacobsCountry⁣ #DiscoverON |#ExploreCanada

"Ontario as seen by @inspiremyadventure:⁣ "The French River has so many unique routes to choose from and the landscape is ever changing. About a quarter way into the 4 day canoe trip, we found our first backcountry campsite on Lost lake.
