From Wikipedia:
Étienne Brűlé (c. 1592 – c. June 1633)[1] was a French explorer and coureur des bois in Canada in the 17th century. A rugged outdoorsman, he took to the lifestyle of the First Nations.

Brűlé travelled to New France in 1608. He portaged at the Rideau Falls and was the first European to view the site of Canada's future capital. Brűlé was sent by Samuel de Champlain to live with the Hurons for the winter of 1610 to learn their language, and Champlain in turn accepted the company of a Huron youth named Savignon. When Brűlé returned to Montreal the following spring, he was a qualified interpreter. For the next twenty two years, he roamed from band to band, building a reputation as a ne'er-do-well and a lecher. Brűlé traveled with the Huron and their chief (Iroquet) to the shores of southern Georgian Bay. There he spent a year in their village, learning their language and customs. He became a scout for Champlain and explored much of what is now Quebec, Ontario, and Michigan.

How PRETTY! At first I thought it was a place of rare beauty near where I live in Texas that I love to go called Hamilton's Pool. It's a stunning place you found here, and photographed to perfection.
