Thousand Islands Skydeck


Just before crossing the border between Canada and the U.S., Jersey Iggy decided to conquer this tower above the Thousand Islands in Ontario: The 1000 Islands Skydeck.

This observation deck goes 400 feet up into the sky and is reachable by either the spiral staircase or the more convenient high-speed elevator. Miss Iggy chose the latter, of course.

You've heard of the "thousand island" dressing, well, turns out there really is a place called "Thousand Islands"--a group of islands (1,793 in all) between Ontario and New York State along the St. Lawrence River. These islands were the inspiration for the popular condiment--the bits of pickle in the dressing were supposed to represent the islands.
