Any day in the Soo

…is a good day!

We needed a variety of provisions, and the day was too wet to be outside, so we drove to Sault Ste Marie.

If that sounds like a non sequitur, consider these facts: the Soo has the only Wal-Mart in the UP, and there are numerous sights available from the car or a few steps from curb-side.

Two examples here:

The International Bridge to Canada, shot in the rain from an open car window!

It’s old, ugly, mammoth, and looks terribly complicated! I need to work a bit to get some shots of it for you, because it should be interesting….

Paul Bunyan, an Army Corps of Engineers crane barge, shot two steps from the parked car through a gap between barbed wire strands above an 8 foot chain link fence! It’s aptly named, I’d say.

Good choice, going to Soo!
