    No S2000 pictures today. We spent the day driving through Quebec City and Montreal towards the Fairmont Montibello, a beautiful hotel between Ottawa and Montreal on the Ottawa River. The hotel is very similar to the Yellowstone Lodge. A huge log structure built over three months in 1930. It was a private club until being purchased by CN Rail in the mid 70's and used as a destination hotel. Well worth the stop.
    As I was raised a few miles away from there I have been known to frequent the establishment from time to time I have to agree it is beautiful and well worth a stay if you are in the area

      We went off course by a few miles on our way to Val D'or Quebec to find another covered bridge. Of course I had to do the covered bridge VTEC thing. The local farmers must have thought I was racing.

        GLORIOUS! Funny thing - although Jason will have to correct me now because I cannot remember which way it was.... We had horses that lived by our old house in Plymouth, and when he would drive by them he would rev up both the S and his motorcycle. One they would completely ignore, the other one would get their attention... Hmmmm.

                  I know, just wanted to know if you got down to around Toronto. Hwy 17 is definitely upper Ontario. Used to drive to Sudbury, North Bay, and Kapuskasing at least twice and sometimes more a year. Also used to hang out in Muskoka region. I have a lot of friends in that area.

                    It was sometime yesterday that we pulled off the highway and parked in front of the old broken down house. In hind sight the barbed wire fence could have been hiding in the grass and given me some tire troubles. Got lucky.

                    Ken, we drove pretty much all of 117 from Montreal area to Rouyn-Noranda then 101 through Matheson and Kapuskasing. 101 turns into 11 through Nipigon on into Thunder Bay. We purposely avoided the GTA and the dense traffic. I quite enjoyed the drive through the woods. Saw a Mom Moose and her two calves thinking about crossing the highway. She turned tail when we pulled to a stop.

                    Tonight we arrived in Thunder Bay a port city on Lake Superior a few hours North of Duluth MN. That few hour drive is well worth the experience and we've done it a couple of times. We dropped in to see Kakabeka Falls which in my opinion is the second greatest water fall in Canada. The recent rains have made it truly great.

                          Why in the world would you ever want to live in Thunder Bay?

                                      Yes indeed! Just enough time to get the S2000 washed waxed and ready for another road trip.

                                      If memory serves me correctly this last road trip image is above Ignace Ontario where they clear cut a hillside to install some utility. They made a road up to it and called it an overlook.
