Greetings from Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba!
I’ve been on the trip now for a full week, have driven over 1,300 miles and have visited 3 national parks:
- Isle Royale, Michigan
- Voyageurs, Minnesota
- Riding Mountain, Manitoba
The theme of the first week has been water. Water in the form of Lake Superior, water in the lakes of Voyageurs, water in the flooding the region has experienced and the water in Clear Lake in Riding Mountain NP.
Where there is water in the north, mosquitoes are also not far behind. I made a stop in southern Manitoba near Lake of the Woods where I found the mosquitoes to be the worst I think I have ever experienced, both in size and quantity.
