Just past Sault St. Marie.

I have to say, this trip has made me fear for Canadian culture. Not that I have any conception of what that might have been… but seriously. At least from the Trans-Canada Highway perspective, every single town is defined by the same shite multinational fast food (or gas or groceries or whatever) that the others are. Wendy’s, Starbucks, Subway, Tim Hortons (not even Canadian anymore)… the idea that familiarity is comfort, and therefore travellers want to walk in and know exactly what to expect. So why travel????

So Sault St. Marie, reigning king of chains so far, wasn’t my bag. Fortunately just a little ways past it was this nice field of cows, beside whom I slept quite happily.
