Day 5 – From Wawa to Sleeping Giant

Route: From Wawa (Ontario) to Sleeping Giant (Provincial Park, Ontario), 290 miles

The part of the route from Marathon to Nipigon was probably the most scenic.

The gas in Canada is more expensive. The price on the picture below translates to $5.37 per gallon.

There were lots of road construction after Nipigon. At one point asphalt was completely removed from a long section of the road. There was only one lane and a flagger on each end. The road was just mud. We were moving really slow and riding was difficult. But then I saw a lady on a bicycle towing a little trailer waiting for her turn.

Sleeping Giant was the most expensive campground and the most disappointing - huge, dusty, noisy. No privacy at all. At least a 10-minute walk to the nearest comfort station with showers.
