interesting article in the Washington Post about the "Thousand Islands" in the St. Lawrence river.
There are actually over 1800 islands in the archipelago on the US-Canada border, some of which are huge, and some of which are very, very small.
Pictured here is the aptly-named "Just Room Enough" Island.
The Canadian side of the archipelago is a national park, and the area is also a world-renown biodiversity site. Amusing Planet has lots of beautiful photos of the area. It certainly reminds me of our own archipelago!
