The long and winding road...

We are headed to Winnipeg in the morning. Not only are we going to Winnipeg, but, in fact, we are DRIVING to Winnipeg. My parents have loaned me one of their cars for the next 2 weeks or so, so that we may drive to Winnipeg, visit with Randal's family, collect our puppy, and then return to Toronto. I've never driven through Northern Ontario, and I'm really looking forward to it. I don't think I've ever been further north than Bracebridge, near Algonquin Park.

It's about a 28-hour drive, which we plan on spreading out over 2 1/2 days. Should be fun. We have made some room on our cameras for yet more photos, prepared some snacks for the car, and lined up a bunch of tunes (on old-fashioned CD technology - no MP3 plug-in for the car, imagine!), and we're off! I might stop traveling someday :)

I did that trip with Jon. Whatever you do, do not stay at the Sea-View Motel in Thunder Bay. Friendly staff (even if they looked like the antagonists from a Grimm fairly tale), but frightening locale, enough so that we didn't stop at all on our way back and dronve from 7AM to 10 Am the following morning.
Also: watch for moose. And bears. And wolves. We saw them all, but especially moose.

Must sees:
1. Sleeping Giant Park, just east of Thunder Bay

1. Lake Superior Park (esp the short walk to see the pictograms)
