Attention all Canucks: even if you're just passing through on your way east or west, you must take the time and stop to admire the beauty of Lake Superior. Each of the scenic site / stop have their own uniqueness. No wonder this area inspired the Group of Seven to paint! Some parts of this reminds me a lot of... More
