Another day of travel comes to a close

Calling it a night - too tired to post all intended thoughts on the day but here are a few shots...


Early morning fog, overcast sky, and very cool temperature leaving Marathon this morning.

I was sorely tempted but resisted the urge to follow, follow, follow, follow, follow...
About 100 yards over the hill a little black bear come out of the woods. I turned around to get a shot of him but a semi came along and scared him off.

Taking a break at a picnic spot along the shore in Lake Superior Provincial Park. behind me is a rare sand beach and in the distance shrouded in fog some shear rocky cliffs rising up out of the lake.

I went through light rain on several occasions today and it was cool enough that I put on my electric liner and gloves this morning although I never actually turned them on because their extra thickness was enough. At times the sky was stormy and dramatic in the distance but clear nearby as in the above photo. Other times it would change to misty and foggy in the forrest giving a romantic and mysterious feel very similar in mood to that so typical at altitude along the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Smokey Mountains of North Carolina. The road was never foggy in a dangerous way and by the end of the day the Simpsons' clouds were back out (see below) and it had warmed nicely as I approached Sault Ste Marie where I am over-nighting.


I stopped at this mega-tourist trap after leaving the park to get some coffee and stretch my legs.
