Jul 5, 2014 - White River, ON - Bear Country

(Ron Writing) It was cloudy and a little foggy when we left our very nice lakeside stop in Rossport this morning. We continued east on the Trans Canada Highway. The scenery was much like yesterday; mostly a drive through heavily forested land passing many small lakes and a few rivers. There were a few stretches that ran beside Lake Superior, the best being several miles starting right at Rossport. Our first stop was at Aguasabon River Gorge where a short walk on a boardwalk took us to a viewing platform overlooking the large fall of the...

Aug 1, 2011 - Ontario bound

Rushing River Provincial Park in northern Ontario is beautiful! Got up early to drive to the next spot (Obatanga Provincial Park) and took a stroll around Rushing River first. Our campsite was huge and the water very close to our camping spot was beautiful with small rapids. On the way to our next spot, we stopped at the Terry Fox memorial in Thunder Bay where we got a great view of Lake Superior. Later on we stopped close to Rossport and the kids waded into the lake and we took some group pictures with my camera. Yesterday and today were...

Jul 22, 2010 - the Greatest Lake

‘Superior’ is more than a name I grew up a few blocks from Lake Michigan so the Great Lakes have always held a special place in my heart. Great oceans of freshwater that can look placid one moment and scare you to death the next. If you’re used to seeing surf, the Great Lakes can fool you into thinking they’re boring. On windless days there is barely a ripple. Water laps peacefully at the shore. Our grandkids make bigger waves playing in the bathtub. A cat makes more noise drinking out of his bowl. But there’s a reason every harbor has a...

Jun 23, 2010 - Obatanga Provincial Park

The overnight fog had burned off by the time we pulled out of Thunder Bay heading east, no set destination in mind. Even though Lake Superior was enveloped in a fog bank we saw some pretty neat sights. A stop in Marathon and another in White River for fuel, and then it was onto Obatanga Provincial Park and the Windy Pines Campsite for the night. After dinner we headed out for a stroll around the campsite and down to the lake shore, and just managed to get back to the trailer before a major downpour set in.

Oct 20, 2007 - North of Wawa

Saturday October 20...9:00pm Sure enough, nobody bothered us last night. But the rain never stopped. If there is one thing I am glad of, it is that our motorhome has ZERO problems in the way of leaks! It is totally leak free, and with the rain we had last night, if it was going to come in, it would have come in then! It had rained so much that there were some streams and creeks along the road that looked like they were in danger of flooding their banks. Headed towards Wawa this morning. Not too many people on the roads up here, except...
