Thunder Bay

We left last Friday August 31 to drive our daughter to Lakehead University in Thunder Bay and tomorrow we will head back to TO.  It's been a great trip!!! The drive for the most part is spectacular with gorgeous views of Lake Superior and the highlands.

Thunder Bay has a lovely waterfront park and the weather has been phenomenal. Today we went to a fabulous waterfall that is on a portage route used by the fur traders long ago.  It helps to put things in perspective when you realize that the rocks here are over 3 billion years old.

Kakabeka Falls, ON
These Falls are almost as high as Niagara. I'm so glad that they are in a provincial park so they can be protected.

We also went to the Terry Fox memorial - it is awesome!

My new blog challenge requires a quote - so here is one for this trip.

The foolish are like ripples on water, for whatsoever they do is quickly effaced; But the righteous are like carvings upon stone, For their smallest act is durable. Horace.

Have an inspiring day!!
