July 10: Thunder Bay to Sudbury Ontario

After hitting up Thunder Bay, it was time to say goodbye and hit the road for Toronto. The plan was to drive as far as I could and maybe stop a little bit along the way to see things. My first stop was actually in Nipigon to get some breakfast at a Robin's Donuts.

One thing I noticed with the drive is there were huge fluctuations in temperature as I went around Lake Superior. It would also get really foggy in spots and then be super clear in other spots.

This was a quick stop at a scenic lookout along the way.

The stop was quick and I was soon on my way to driving again. I had to take a leak so I stopped at an information center. Unlike the rest stops I stopped along the way from Winnipeg to Thunder Bay, this one had running water, a bunch of cool artifacts inside, and even had people camping outside of it (which I was told was allowed, unlike most US rest stops).

My next stop was this attraction sort of rest stop by Sault St. Marie.

As with the other stops, I took a quick leak and hit the road again. I made it to yet another rest stop with running water and was able to catch the sunset.

Later that night I needed gas and I was hungry, so I stopped and got some pepperoni sticks and a sandwich after filling up. I ended up staying the night at another rest stop around Sudbury, Ontario.

The bugs were definitely killer at this rest stop. Luckily it was cold enough I could keep the windows fully up and not burn up, like I would have in Texas this time of year. I was able to get some sleep and be ready for another long day of driving the next day.
