Great photo thread, Flar!

I visited Thunder Bay a couple of years ago, and in a lot of ways it reminds me of Duluth, Minnesota before it became a summer tourist mecca.

Did you get a chance to check out some of the beautiful natural attractions near Thunder Bay, like Kakabeka Falls, Sleeping Giant, or Ouimet Canyon? That area has some stunning scenery.

It was a brief visit, but I did go for a short hike to get those views of the sleeping giant and I went to the top of Mount McKay.

If you ever have the "pleasure" of experiencing a winter on the North Shore of Lake Superior, you may rethink that sentiment.

Thunder Bay's looking good! To me, it reminds me of Buffalo's south waterfront with all the grain elevators and railroad tracks and industrial land. Downtown is something to be desired, but it does maintain a sense of urbanity and its collection of historic buildings is well intact.

That's the great thing about this website! With photo threads as great as this, you get to go places you've never been to before without ever leaving home.
