Photo Post: A Superior Shore

When Chele and I left Thunder Bay, I knew the drive around Lake Superior to Sault Ste. Marie would be gorgeous. The first thing that I wanted to see, though, was the Terry Fox Memorial & Lookout. For those reading who might not be familiar with him: Terry Fox had one of his legs amputated due to cancer and 3 years later, he began a journey across Canada—the Marathon of Hope—to raise awareness and money for cancer research. Starting at Cape Spear in Newfoundland (Canada’s easternmost point), he ran for 143 days until the cancer spread and he had to give up his quest east of Thunder Bay. He died the following year, and is remembered across Canada as one of its most inspirational heroes. The Memorial near Thunder Bay stands close to the spot where he ended his journey.

Another waterfall fail: our view of Aguasabon Falls from the “lookout.”


Lake Superior at Old Woman Bay in Lake Superior Provincial Park: gorgeous view!
