Yes, you've got it. The landscape. I lived in Vancouver for 2 years recently, but came back to Toronto. As stunningly beautiful as it is, it wasn't my city; this is. While Ontario is scrubby and uninteresting, there is a stability to the land that I didn't find on the West coast, which always felt like it was floating on sea water. I attribute it to the Canadian Shield underlying this part of the continent. It's why the soil is not as deep or rich (except in the Holland Marsh) and why the vegetation is not as magnificent, too...

Beautiful, poetic post! Love the description of the interface between city and wilderness, and the mountains...
