One of my favorite things to do when the weather is so nice is to go for a drive in the county, and that’s exactly what I did after my appointment today. When showing county properties to clients, they all seem have the same wants and needs. The first is “it must be a nice quite place away from the city” and the other is “It must have a nice view”. I’m not really sure which one is more important as everyone is different, but either way I ended up in north Dufferin County in Mulmur Township!
If you think that Mulmur is all hillbillies, then doing a little bit of research might change your change your mind. There are a lot of famous people that either live or lived in Mulmur and you might be surprised to know that Mel Gibson filmed a movie called Mrs. Soffel in 1984 not to far from where I am today. And if the names such as Don Cherry from CBC’s Coaches corner, Andy Barrie from 99.1 CBC former Metro morning host a few years ago, Dini Petty from CTV and Blue Jim Cuddy from Blue Rodeo don’t convince you then nothing will…LOL
Have you been driving to work, the cottage, friends place the same way every time? It might be about time for you to explore the different wonderful and awesome views on some different roads on Mulmur. There are so many roads with different terrain and I dare you to get out of your comfort zone, go to drive a different way and make a commitment to have fun no matter what. Really I do! Slow down and take some photos and post them on the 365 Things To Do In Orangeville and Dufferin County.
So today I thought it would be cool write a post about one of the nicest locations to view Mulmur Ontario. This is some of the most spectacular land of Dufferin and it was settled in 1848 by a guy named W.M Rusk and hence the name RUSKVIEW.
Ruskview, is a crossroads hamlet high in the Mulmur Hills, is the most scenic of the Escarpment’s ghost towns. It earned this reputation because of its spectacular long views down over the Pine River Valley. If you are touring by car, pull over at Ruskview and enjoy one of the Escarpment’s least known but most magnificent vistas.
To get to Ruskview, take Hwy. 124 north from Hornings Mills. At Redickville, go east on County Road 21 to Ruskview.
True Story in 1901 Pittsburgh. Mrs. Soffel (Keaton) is a Mother of three and the warden’s wife. While reading passages and handing out bibles to the prisoner’s, she comes across deathrow inmates (Mel Gibson) and his Brother (Matthew Modine). What must have been shocking, even by today’s standards, she falls in love with one of the inmates and helps both escape, ending up going with them. To TV’s “Lost” fans, John Locke (Terry O’Quinn)is hot on the escapee’s trail as Detective Buck McGovern. With a spoiler ending and quite long, I wouldn’t exactly call it a trailer, so I’ll call it a trailer-like micro movie. Music is a mix of the original soundtrack to this movie, from Mark Isham’s Film Music, Windham Hill Records, CD. Original length movie version directed by Gillian Armstrong
