We took about a week to complete it. We toured from July 22 to Aug. 5, 2016. We saw so many beautiful sights along the way, it’s hard to choose, but I think one of the most memorable events was when we were in our campground in Nipigon relaxing and reading, and my husband looked up to see a baby bear sitting next to him as if he were the family dog or something. We followed the proper protocol and shooed him away, but the poor little guy was clearly lost and saddened that we wouldn’t adopt him. He kept wandering back to us and finally the local sheriff showed up and shooed him away with lights and sirens.
It was definitely a trip that we will always remember and I’m glad we were able to share it with our kids.
