Today (Sunday 24 June) always promised a lot given what others had told us about the east side of Lake Superior, in particular the ride through the Lake Superior Provincial Park and the big downhill near Montreal River.
We started out from Rabbit Blanket Provincial Campground after packing up our wet tents (again) in very foggy and drizzly conditions which limited our visibility. In the early part of the day no sooner we would get to a lookout and the fog would roll in off the lake which cut off our views of the lake and also dropped the temperature quite dramatically. As the day progressed the waves of fog lessened and the lake opened up to us and we could also get better views of the trees and more dramatic rock faces. (Note: In the 1st photo you can see another fog cloud in the distance. In 5 minutes after this photo was taken all of what you can see was in fog again).
I hope the photos below give you an idea of the variation in the coastline, the size of some of the countless rivers and creeks that flow into the Lake. It really is hard to imagine you are looking at an inland lake, rather than a sea side coastline. This was a special Sunday ride that we will remember for a long time. Travelling by bike in areas like this is a great experience.
