Welcome to Ontario, Canada

This morning we left the motel about 7:20 a.m. and headed to our first cache, about 10 minutes away. The air was very cool with slightly overcast skies. The walk to the cache was about .2 mile. The forest was alive with birds singing and big fish jumping in the nearby lake. The forest was absolutely beautiful and smelled wonderful. This was a very enjoyable hunt for the “Trans Canada Travelers” cache. It was our last cache in Manitoba.

We found our first Ontario cache in Kenora about 9:45 a.m. this morning. The forest was beautiful. Lots of evergreen trees and the violets were blooming. So far the drive in Ontario is much prettier than Manitoba. Lots of rocky mountains and beautiful forest.

We drove off the main highway about 5 miles to go after the “The Great Canadian Blue Lake Geocache” at the Blue Lake Provincial Park. The park folks were so interested in geocaching that they wanted to go help find the cache. Randy and Skye led us to the trail head and accompanied us to the cache site. Skye found this one first after Randy walked right by it. It's also her first ever geocache find. It was a real joy to have them accompany us on the hunt. Mary said it was a little ruff on her new knee. Mary saw a splintered tree lying across the path and Skye said a bear had peeled the bark and splintered the wood. The woods were absolutely beautiful.

After we left Blue Lake Park it started some serious raining. I found the next several caches in the rain. I got soaked. The umbrella was about useless in the dense foliage and using a GPS in the rain is very hard with the dense tree cover. The woods are wonderful. I saw bear marks on a tree near the “Thunder Creek” cache. The water was just roaring over the falls on Thunder Creek.

WOW! We would have missed this falls I'm sure had it not been for geocaching. It's been pouring down with rain all afternoon and I'm sure the falls must be at their peak. The only problem was the mosquitoes. We were killing mosquitoes for the next 30 minutes or so in the van.
