From prison to park - Unveiling a storied past at Neys Provincial Park
  The history in Thunder Bay and Northwest Ontario is deep and storied and much is able to be explored today. From prison to playground, Neys Provincial Park, located 60 km east of Terrace Bay on Highway 17, is a study in contrast. Beneath the soft carpet of moss hides the ruins of German prisoner of war and Japanese internment camps of World War II. Off season, the visitors’ centre is closed; however, one can…

Thanksgiving weekend I had the pleasure of attending a friend’s wedding held at Rose Valley Lodge. I had heard many wonderful things about this venue prior to making the drive out: how delicious the food was, how incredible the views and scenery and how welcoming the owners Markus Hoffman and his wife Debbie were to visitors. Knowing these things, I was looking forward to experiencing it for myself.   The Drive is as Beautiful as…

  The view of Lake Superior from the top of Mink Mountain is jaw-dropping. I stand on the smooth face of a rock plateau surrounded by openness, blue sky racing overhead, turquoise water spread out below, here and there the white blip of a sailboat. Dark shapes of islands emerge majestically from the lake defining water from sky until they meet in the misty distance. From this vantage point it is not hard to see…

Finnish Culture in Thunder Bay: A City of Sisu
Sisu (see-soo, pronounced quickly) is a little Finnish word with a big meaning. You will see it all over Thunder Bay on bumper stickers, clothing, and even tattooed on youth. It means tenacity, strength, stamina, strong will, even stubbornness. For the descendents of the Finnish immigrants, the pop cultural branding of the word is a way to pay homage and to recognize the challenges of the Finnish ancestors who settled here. Sisu is more than…

While exploring Thunder Bay, don’t miss Little Trout Bay, located just 5kms down Little Trout Bay Road off of Highway 61. It is a perfect spot to get a little taste of everything Northwest Ontario has to offer. The best part about walking the trail at Little Trout Bay Conservation Area is hearing the lap of Lake Superior through the trees.  I stroll over the moss-covered path, which makes a loop through the woods, and…
