Wet morning! Lots of rain all the way into Thunder Bay. Too wet to see much of anything. (Thanks John, we’re dry and snug as a bug. J)
We stopped at Kababeca Falls to admire the grandeur of nature. I never get tired of seeing new falls; each and every one is very unique. Good pictures. In the parking lot we met 2 couples that had ridden their motorcycles thru the rainstorm. Nasty weather for bikers. I did take pictures of the bikes, as two of them were Volkswagen 3 wheelers. The women looked very comfortable handling them.
Passed a sign today that said “all streams flow north to the Artic Ocean from here”.
Miles and miles of mountainous roads, trees and more lakes today. Have not seen any wild animals just lots of beware signs.
We stopped and ate a healthy lunch consuming the last of our fresh fruit and veggies preparing for the boarder crossing at International Falls in a couple of hours. I understand travelers are not allowed to bring fresh produce into the states.
We were about 40 miles from the boarder and needed gas so Dave bought $26.00’s worth….about 3.8 gals!!!! We were lucky, the place we bought it from was just closing at 4:00 PM; we didn’t have a minute to spare.
Crossed the border without much of a fuss. There were lots of questions now that we haven’t had in the past and the agent was very intense with the questioning.
Stayed in International Falls for the night. Colorful sunset. Windy all night with some chill to it.
