Day 40: Thunder Bay to Nipigon

Wednesday, July 19th

Total kilometers: 117km

Our campground? Still Water Campground - they wanted to first charge us 50 dollars but with a little B4B charm, we managed 29 (thats 10 dollars a tent, plus 3 extra adults for one site)

We had a great tailwind today which really helped move us along. I think this is because we are headed North around Lake Superior and there is a northernly wind off the lake. Wow! I have never seen a great lake before and it is UNREAL! It really does remind us of the ocean; Lake Superior is beautiful and clear, and often green coloured (stay posted for photos).

Alisha Mills is famous! She was interviewed by the TV station and we all met up at the Terry Fox Memorial (oh- us SFUites are so proud) for a photo.

We are definately getting into a hilly section of Ontario....

I know that area very well. Lake Superior is enormous for a fresh water lake, indeed.

Be sure to locate some of the Flying DOgs when you get to the Waterloo area.

I was a member for 6 years and coordinated the Women's Cycling Clinics. If you put a posting on their forum section I bet you will get hostels and taken on some wonderful rides through Mennonite Country and even toward Niagara Falls.
