Lake Superior Provincial Park -- Nokomis Trail (6-29-10)
The Nokomis Trail sits just inland from Old Woman Bay in the northern limits of Lake Superior Provincial Park. Providing a wonderful introduction to the boreal forest environment which dominates from this point north, the trail also offers wonderful southern vistas of the surrounding forested hills and stunning Old Woman Bay to the west. The 3-mile trail served as my initial introduction to Lake Superior Provincial Park over a decade ago. This time I returned with a couple youngun's and found the trip to be every bit as wonderful as the first time I visited. Pictures are worth more than my babbling, so enjoy the album...
