Canadian Art Trek: Kenora

April 17, 2013

Day 5: Kenora

 After a long snowy drive from Thunder Bay, I found myself in Kenora. The small city is has every amenity a tired traveller could wish for. I was very impressed with the harbourfront of the city which has maintained its old historic buildings and its small town appeal. Kenora is surrounded by Lake of the Woods. It seems that almost every house boasts a waterfront view or access. The city’s economy has long been based around mining and lumber. There is a large sign upon entering the city announcing that the Kenora Thistles had won the Stanley Cup in 1907 as an amateur team comprised of lumbermen. Near my motel the town mascot stood proudly-a giant 40 foot sculpture of “Husky the Muskie”. Due to heavy  snow conditions no art projects were made today.Image
