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…

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.

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…

It is a perfect blue sky, golden tree autumn afternoon the day I drive to Cedar Falls Conservation Area. Tucked away in the shadow of the mighty Kakabeka Falls, Cedar Falls is not a well-known spot, but it is one of the eleven conservation areas maintained in the Thunder Bay area by the Lakehead Regional Conservation Authority and is definitely worth discovering. It might not be well-known, but it is clearly well loved I realize…
