Thunder Bay to Kenora (Lakes and forest, more lakes and more forest ^^)
25 to 30 July: After a resupply stop in Thunder Bay (I am still surprised how I always manage to find space on my bike for the huge amount of food I buy, haha), my buddies from Montreal and I left Lake Superior behind us and continued westwards. We passed the impressive Kakabeka Falls where we found out, that official camping in Provincial Parks is just a shameless rip-off - over 40 CAD for a spot, no matter if you are one or three people. No thanks!
The next day my friends continued on HWY 17 (the busier one), while I followed HWY 11 and 71. However, we planned to meet again in Kenora, despite my route being 70 kms longer. Challenge accepted.
I passed through Fort Frances and Emo, the latter actually is a very nice little town, directly at the border river to the USA. The local park there even has clean showers, a covered BBQ area and power. I as a cyclist call that a hotel, haha.
And indeed, we met in Kenora and had a beer and some food in the local brewery. Yeah.
