Completing the Tour, Canadian Side

When contemplating where to go for fall color viewing, Lake Superior came to mind. We decided on an excursion to the Canadian side, the only part of the Big Lake we had not seen on previous travels. Using the Lake Superior Travel Guide along with other sources, we planned a seven-day trip for the last week of September. We started from Sault Ste. Marie, MI, and drove counter clockwise through More
