Sioux Lookout - Town of Adventure

Jetty Sioux LookoutI really don't think there's anything you can't do, outdoors or otherwise, in Sioux Lookout! This is a brief look at some of the activities that we took part in while we were there, staying with my uncle Jon and his family (stop number 2 on Dave's Great Morgan Tour of Canada).

'The North'

Snow on branches'The North' is how people in Sioux Lookout refer to the vast region of water and wilderness that lies to the north of the town. There are people who live there, and Sioux Lookout kind of the 'gateway' town - this is where flights leave from and where the people have access to services and so on.

Girls Outdoors so I could get a good scholarship application together, I successfully spammed Dr Brent Cuthbertson.

tn_P3160358.JPGMmmmmmmm....maple syrup! I have a Canadian Dad so we grew up with the good stuff on our pancakes and I learnt from an early age that imitation maple syrup is for people who don't know any better.

If you’re sick of the tourists, just follow the camouflaged fishermen

tn_P3150321.JPGWe took advantage of a beautiful, sunny, spring day to visit Niagara Falls - one of the most amazing natural features that I've ever seen. However, because it's so amazing and because there's a road right up to it and because there are a million casinos, strip clubs, interactive adventures and souvenir shops, there also a million tourists. We followed some camouflaged fishermen to get away from it all.
