How many hiking trails does the park have?
Gitchi-gami (Be a great sea)
Feb 27, 2015
My dad and I took a trip to Thunder Bay in November of 2013. We had a 12-hour drive ahead of us back home to Sudbury, but we made a quick pit-stop at a small beach cove off of the highway. The wind was strong enough to make my eyes water and the waves rolled in at high speeds, licking my sneakers as I tried to get as close to the water as I could without getting completely drenched. Standing in front of this massive body of water, with all of my senses going into overdrive, I have never felt so at peace with myself; no cell phone reception, no Wifi, no interruptions, no worries. Just my tiny self, a soggy pair of shoes, and a hunger for what lays ahead.
Reflections of Home
Feb 7, 2015
This is a photo I took last July of the sun setting over Lake Superior.
Being from Vancouver originally, and having recently moved to Thunder Bay, I am so thankful for this beautiful lake that makes me feel so at home when I am missing B.C.
What I love most about this photo is the intensity of the colour, and how it reflects on the water. I am always intrigued by how bright the colours of the sunsets and rises are in the summer, compared to the muted pastels of the winter sunsets and sunrises.
This large, rugged park sits on North America's largest Great Lake - near the home of the original inhabitants of the area, the Ojibwa, and now a major part of the Trans-Canada Highway (there called Highway 17). It is also an important area for shipping along the great lakes, which is an important part of international trade routes. It is also stunningly beautiful and largely untouched - like much of Canada's wilderness.
