We did the Circle Route in a Counterclockwise direction. The friendliest welcome was from the entire staff of the Towne Place Suites in Thunder Bay. They all made us feel at home. Surprised us the most??? The delicious tree ripened peaches from an orchard between Red Cliff and Bayfield. Foraging for wild blueberries and raspberries in a secret location between Wawa and Rossport. The closure of the Trans Canadian Highway, Highway 17, for nearly 19 hours while police investigated a very bad accident involving 2 cars and a moose between Sault Ste Marie and Wawa. There was no detour and no real communication. Fortunately, we had water and a few protein bars. Suggestion for people, make sure you travel with plenty of water and food on board. Optimum length for a full Tour…goodness…we could’ve spent at least a month and still would not have seen everything. Revisit for a week? Definitely Copper Harbor and Sault Ste. Marie Highest spot?? Probably Split Rock Lighthouse or Silver Creek Tunnel and overlook.
