Canada Connection

We love Canada, and that's a good thing since Ontario is physically closer to us than any U.S. state or even our own state capitol.

Back in early January we got invited to a media weekend at Stokely Creek Lodge, a lux Nordic ski resort just north of Sault Ste. Marie. It's owned by a Michigan family and boasts around 120 k of gorgeous trails and even snowshoe trails up a mountain overlooking Lake Superior. It is the best skiing and snowshoeing we've ever experienced, and that says a lot because our own backyard in the Upper Peninsula is so top notch. It's a little hard to admit that our neighbors to the north have it even better when it comes to snowy scenery.

Plus, we got to meet a whole crew of interesting Canadian writers and photographers like our longtime heroes Gary and Joanie McGuffin, Conor Mihell and James Smedley.

Here's a link to Smedley's recent piece in the Sault Star newspaper on our weekend of adventure.
