Spending a Week up in Northern Ontario makes it hard to choose just seven photos to convey the entire week. There’s so much beauty up there. My trip took me up through North Bay, Temagami, Cobalt, Kirkland Lake, Timmins, Sudbury, and South Baymouth before returning home. So without further words on my part, let’s see here.
North Bay, and the gateway to the North. From here on out the distances between towns become longer, and the roads lonelier.
The Little town of Temagami as viewed from the top of an old MNR Fire watch tower, now open to the public as a great viewing platform.
Cobalt, the most historical towns in the province, home to a massive silver rush in the early twentith century, now home to hundreds of rusting and many preserved Head Frames. Their tag line “Come for a Day, Discover a Century” rings very true.
The Temiskaming & Northern Ontario Railroad Locomotive 701 sits in Englehart, the last steam engine to prowl the rail lines of Northern Ontairo.
The Miner’s Memorial in Kirkland Lake, a nearby Carin lists the names of all those who lost their lives in mining accidents in local mines.
One of my favourite locations in Northern Ontario remains the old Ross Mine. Opened in the 1930s, this gold mine continued to operate until it’s closure in 1988.
As much as I love Highway 11, Highway 144 between Timmins and Sudbury was a really fun drive!
