There's a place not far over the nearest border crossing from us (Port Huron MI/Sarnia ON) where you can go fossil hunting and keep what you find. It's called Rock Glen Provincial Park. While my parents were here for Kaylee's birthday weekend, we decided to all take a trip there since my Dad is a big fossil bluff and Kaylee is becoming one too. My parents were headed home and were taking the Canada route so it worked out to be on their way home.

My Dad had polio, so that he could manage this path up to the visitor's center was pretty impressive.

Hazel is excited about fossils!
The paths through the park are all boardwalk and stairs, since you're basically climbing down a river gorge.
The creek bed where you pretty much trip over fossils.

There's a gorgeous waterfall that you can swim in too. Once Hazel's older, we'll go back and plan to swim. The water was chilly but refreshing!
Kaylee wanted so badly to swim. I did have her suit, but the water was too cold for her to do much more than wade.
Eric went exploring downriver.
