Lake Superior Tour Day 4

After a good nights sleep I crawled out of bed and got ready to head for the shower. Isaiah was already showered and back. He warned me that the showers are very cold. I took my chances and he was right, it was one of the coldest showers I have ever taken. It was so cold that my mind kept thinking that the shower was getting warmer even though it wasn't.

Doug then took a turn at the showers. He of course had warm water. This is the only clear picture I have of the shower doors. You see the last two doors how one has the shower head in yellow and the other has the shower head surrounded by yellow? One has hot water the other doesn't. Good thing to keep in mind.



We packed up and headed out of the park.


On our way out of the park area we stopped at a lookout. The drive up to the lookout was awesome. As we got towards the end I was wondering why someone dumped cement on the gravel road, it turned out that we were driving on top of the mountain.




































From here we headed out looking for an old military base but it seems it was taken over by a religious cult so we weren't able to access it but we did come across this dog.


He didn't like us very much.

Our next stop was Eagle Canyon Adventures and the longest suspension bridge in Canada.


















































After all the fun at Eagle Canyon we realized we had burned half our day away already. We hit the road.

Another fine lookout along our ride.












Fancy water fall.








We stopped in a town and got some lunch. You could tell we haven't had internet for a couple of days.




We all ordered bacon cheeseburgers with Poutine. Isaiah had been waiting for the time he could get fries and gravey but this place did one better and gave us Poutine which is fries, gravy, and motzzorala cheese.


It was one of the best meals I've had in a long time.

Some random rail car outside the restaurant. You see in Doug's hand there a Kinder Egg, they are against the law in the U.S. It is a chocolate egg with a toy in the middle.






We ended up back in a railroad area looking for a mine but didn't see what we were looking for.



We decided to set up camp at Pukaskwa National Park and it had this great beach.






The chipmunks were very friendly.
