From far and wide

After Serpent River we found a roadside (illegal) campsite in an First Nation (Native American Reservation) just north of Little Current. From there we crossed a small bridge which separates the island from the mainland.

Days earlier on one of the first days biking with my father my mom bumped into a family friend from Potsdam who happened to have a sister with a camp on the island. A quick phone call to Judy and Chuck, and we were set up with a place to stay and a terrific guide. On the island we found a terrific hike with the help our newly made friends, Judy and Chuck. The hike traveled along and over the middle of the Niagara Escarpment which also is the geological structure responsible for Niagara Falls.
The MS Chi-Cheemaun delivered us to the tip of the Bruce Peninsula in just under 2 hours. We traded stories with a fellow traveler from the Isle of Man who was just over half-way through his solo journey across Canada. Excessive linkage!!!
Bike maintenance was greatly needed for Dan's Back wheel as posted earlier. One of the spokes pulled through the frame completely and others were very close. The bike persevered however and was ridden all the way to a great bike store in Owen Sound.

I'm signing out for now, many more posts are scheduled for tonight.
