Kenora to Thunder Bay, Ontario on our Cross Canada RV Adventure

We left Kenora late morning to head east to Thunder Bay, Ontario, we love RV’ing and we're on our Cross Canada RV Adventure and are ready for another day of seeing new country. We enjoyed the new scenery, there are lots of rocks, trees and lakes and then more rocks, trees and lakes.

We are starting to see some similarities to home in British Columbia. The highway is flanked by rock walls that the highway weaves thru, which we haven’t seen for awhile after spending time in the Prairies.

There are so many roadside lakes that we are passing by. They are on both sides of the road and I am just not able to get pictures of them all but hope to get at least a couple taken out the truck window as we pass by. And the better pictures are always on the other side of the road, so it is impossible to get that special picture !

Some lakes are tiny, some are larger with islands on them, but they are all so pretty. We understand that the fishing is great in this part of the country, too.

We do know that summer travel means road construction. For the most part, we were not held up for any length of time on Hwy 17, the traffic was kept moving quite well.
Do follow the speed recommended, for safety sake. It can be a dangerous place to be for construction workers.

Maggie is a great traveler and spends most of the time in the truck sleeping. But there are times that she decides she should help and gets on animal alert !

Kakabeka Falls

Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park is west of Thunder Bay and a nice spot to stop and stretch your legs as you enjoy the Falls. There is a boardwalk that allows you to walk from one side of the falls over the bridge and back up the other side.

Kakabeka means “thundering water” in Ojibwa. The Falls are on Kaministiquia River and drops 40 metres (132 ft) on its way to Lake Superior. Visits in the park may include camping, hiking, swimming and viewing the gorge. During winter there are 15 km (9 mi) of trails groomed for cross-country skiing and skating.
