After a night on a back road near Kettle Lakes Provincial Park, we headed into Timmins.
Unfortunately, Shania Twain was not in town, so we settled for an oil change – not a fair trade at all! From there it was cross country towards Wawa on a rough Ontario road at 80km/hr – in the rain. The leaves were just starting to change in that area, and it appeared that some of them had just turned brown and gotten blown off. We spent the night at the same lakeside camp spot near Rossport we had used on the way east, but perhaps because of the lack of leaves it felt even closer to the highway and was somewhat noisier.
If the changing leaves were not indicator enough, there were other signs that fall was upon us.
In the ‘signs’ section there were a few suitable entries. This sign advised campers to take their propane cylinders home with them, but provided a convenient orange container for them …!
Most of my sign photos are outdoors, but I thought this one warranted inclusion. It was found over a urinal in a campground or visitor centre .
I thought this next sign was a bit discriminatory, though there are a lot of state parks that charge non-residents higher fees... And, neither Canada nor US gas pumps seem to like credit cards from the other country.
In this part of Ontario I saw a lot of solar panel installations that did not seem to be related to a particular residence of business. I assume they are hooked into the provincial power grid?
Next: Manitoba moose!
