|Marathon, Lake Superior 8 am|
|Sun rise,Terrace Bay|
Yes, we have snow.. and lots of it. Maybe 6 - 8 inches. With all the pine and birch trees surrounding us, it feels "a little bit like Christmas"
We are now in Central Time Zone and passed the Artic Watershed.
Feels like.....well, cold and artic, a dry cold as the locals say. Remember, "Your in the real north now!"
Once we passed Thunder Bay the land flattens out, but still surrounded by snow covered pine trees. We headed towards Dryden and the Lake of the Woods region. How beautiful! Hundreds of lakes and rolling hills. Much like Algonquin, except for the thousands of people running with cameras stopping in the middle of the highway. Yes, the traffic up here in the real north so busy....So many vehicles! We must have passed at least 3 trucks along Highway #17 from Thunder Bay to Dryden. Love cruise control. Bob and I have been sharing the driving. Too bad we can't also share the knitting. Just think about it; I could knit one leg warmer and Bob could knit the other!! (some how, it don't think that will happen)
We arrived in Kenora one hour early. (blame it on Central time Zone) We get an extra hour sleep!!! Yea!!!!!! So, we are eating in our hotel room tonite. (they have a microwave and we have food) We are already getting tired of eating by default.
Tomorrow.. two hours to Winnipeg, Manitoba and the Praires. The big camera will be in the front seat tomorrow with my wide angle lens. As for now, a cold beer and a hot shower......
