Cross Canada and Back, Part 61


Manitoulin Island to Neys Provincial Park

Sept 16th 2011 , Friday, day 124


Anders woke me up at 6 am. We just made coffee, packed breakfast and lunch, broke camp. At 7 am
7 am, sun is just about to come up.
we were rolling over the Little Narrows bridge direction Espanola. Not a cloud in the sky, minus 3 degrees Celsius, a beautiful crisp autumn morning.

The mist and fog was steaming off the ponds as we drove Birch Island and Whitefish Falls.
After Espanola we were heading west toward Sault St.Marie.

The drive along the North Channel, Lake Huron, between the mainland and Manitoulin Island was spectacular that morning.

Wonderful drive and beautiful landscape.
We drove up steep hills and down again, in and out of fog and sunshine. From time to time we could see distant views of the lake.

Then all of a sudden we were right down by pristine beaches, like in Culter and Blind River. In Serpent River it is minus 2 degrees Celcius.

We drove through Sault Ste. Marie, then north along gorgeous Batchawana Bay, Pancake Bay, Montreal River. This is a great drive that should not be missed.
Camped right next to the beach. Just wonderful.

Liz for a walk on the beach. Feeling much better now!

We stopped from time to time to admire the lonely and raw country side.

We continued through Lake Superior Provincial Park, Wawa, and Marathon to Neys Provincial Park.

We liked this park a lot when we drove east in early summer, so we decided to came back here, right on Lake Superior.

I was a little woozy from the long drive and all the up and downs through the rock cuts of Highway 17.

I was soon feeling better. Amazing what a bit of food and some wine can do.

After supper, and we went for a nice walk on the beach in a golden sunset.

This park is very special and if you travel this route you just have to visit here.

We were camped right next to the beach and it is just so wild and wonderful. Ontario at its best.
