Port Coldwell

Some of my stops were inspired by a Geology Handbook of Lake Superior and and Canadian Geographic Ecotour manual for Pidgeon River to Sault Ste. Marie. This was a lucky stop - where I just happened to pull of on a road to check my map and discovered it was the right one. My next attempted detour did not work so well, since Neys Park was closed and the beach is no where near the closed gate.

Port Coldwell is a ghost town that inspired Lorne Harris of the Group of Seven to paint his picture (Icehouse, Port Coldwell - I think this was the title). Now a ghost town, on Railroad property, blocked off by a gate, the remains of this town are a dock and a graveyear and a few bits and pieces of foundations. Neat stop.
