"This film introduces the viewer to some of the natural scenery at Elora, approximately 75 miles from Toronto. As the intertitles narrate, the viewer is shown the rapids and eroded cliffs. At the junction of the Grand and Irvine Rivers, the water is more peaceful; a group of tourists take in the beauty of the glen here. Some women are seen wading in the river. At the top of the cliff is 'Lovers' Leap' from which the river can be seen, far below. Nearby is a cave called 'Hole-in-the-rock'. As the tourists leave Elora to return home, the viewer is shown a scene of still water and huge cliffs."
