Doggies and I went to visit kin on Lake Manitou on Tuesday and Wednesday. Here are some pix of the outbound and return trip:
La Cloche quartzite at Willisville:
Highway cut to the right of the Lawson Quarry, where quartzite is mined to be used as a flux at Vale’s Smelter operations in Sudbury. A few years ago Vale made a terrific contribution to the area.
These were taken at sunrise from Green Bay Road:
This Sandhill Crane from Irish Line very early in the morning:
The following were all taken on the return trip later on Wednesday morning:
Wild carrot (Queen Anne’s Lace) at the Strawberry Island Viewpoint donated by Bob Brailey’s family. I knew Bob when he was at Falconbridge. He was a very valuable member of the Cambrian College BoG and left this world much too early.
Common knapweed and harebell blooming at the boat launch to Dreamer’s Rock.
Great sign on an old garage in Whitefish Falls:
You might have to click on this to enlarge the signs. I don’t know the significance of the bell. Perhaps storage for an old firewagon??
Doe leaving a lawn in Whitefish Falls:
And then Sudbury and home without much excitement. Good way to keep it when on the road!
