IN THE TINY TOWN OF ROSSPORT
WHO KNOWS WHO OWNS THE SIGNAL??
Just east of Thunder Bay, Ontario is a low hanging hunk of land jutting down into Lake Superior called the Sibley Peninsula. We had traveled down this way 20 years ago after leaving our 33ft travel trailer up on the main highway.... we didn't know how bad the roads would be so we only traveled in our truck to explore to the south. This time we knew we could drive on down to at least the Sleeping
Giant Provincial Park safely in our motorhome without leaving the pavement. (30,000+ pounds can be a bit daunting on gravel roads, especially after four days of rain!
It was just starting to drizzle some more as we entered the park. We decided to opt for an electric site as it was only $4 more than a non-electric. Then we can run the electric heater and our electric mattress pads and save on propane a bit. With so many icky rainy days in a row, we are not getting the solar charging we normally do. Short drive times are not enough to charge up all four batteries either. Yesterday we only went 70 miles and the day before only 23.
The rangers let us drive down into the campgrounds to look around and select a site. Most of the nice ones along the water were taken, but many within the campground area were on muddy red iron puddled roads. We opted for a site in a loop very close to the blacktop, site 85 on higher ground. As we rounded the corner to our site, what did we see????
Yup! She was standing right there in our campsite and stood still enough to take pics! I was surprised that she wasn't too afraid. Turns out they have gotten so used to humans all summer long, that we really don't faze them. The dogs were somewhat interested at first, thinking they were "big doggies" but soon ignored them as well.
Here is a You Tube I made of just how interested they are!
We had considered taking some trails, but the rangers warned us of impending storms rolling in and we didn't want to get stuck out in the woods somewhere during a deluge.
