A Mini-Hike Makes our Day

I had a shower this morning! It turns out that most Ontario Provincial Parks have what they call a "comfort station". Bascially, this is just a building that has flush toilets, free, clean, hot showers, and a laundromat. Coming from BC, the land of pit toilets, this was a luxury indeed. Last night I even paid to do some laundry because everything we own stinks. We feel so much cleaner now!

After a quick breakfast of a banana and nutella sandwich (my new favourite morning meal) we hit the road. We basically just drove all day. We grabbed some Subway in Wawa and took it to Old Woman Bay in Lake Superior Provincial Park for a bit of a picnic. It was really pretty, but quite cold since it was windy. Other than that, not much happened on the road.

We got groceries for dinner (tofu stirfry because we are such West Coast hippies) in Sault Ste. Marie, a.k.a. "The Soo" and headed to our campsite at Chutes Provincial Park. The park is called "Chutes" because there used to be wooden chutes to carry logs around the waterfalls on the Riviere aux Sables when there was a large scale logging operation there. We arrived early enough to take advantage of the little hiking trails to the falls and rapids. It felt nice to walk around a get a little sweaty.
