Driving across Canada

Only 3500 kilometers to go!
We buckled our seat belts, cranked some tunes and go ready for a long long journey.
The sky was clear as we cruise east with the Silver Rocket; our toyota previa van.
Driving across Canada is not the most exciting journey. As soon as you leave Calgary
the scenery starts with thousands km of flat farm land; the prairies. Oil rigs left and right in Alberta,
Barns and never ending farm land in Saskatchewan and Manitoba and long straight Trans - Canada highway.
The sun shone for us the entire way which made our drive more enjoyable.
We drove over 800 km per day and slept at rest areas at night.
The last stretch in Ontario is the worst part. Remotely deep in the forest with speed limit dropping to 90 km/ hour
due to many wildlife. Deers tend to come out at night
along the highway making the driving even more dangerous. After several hours into the
darkness, I didn't want to hit a deer so we stopped early to rest up for an early start.
Bianca wasn't too impressed when we got behind a redneck pick up and noticed a dead
moose in the back of his trailer... yap... Ontario is hunting world. We finally arrived in Ottawa, Ontario
after 4 nights and 5 days, we were looking forward to a warm shower and get out of the seats.
For some reasons. every time I cross Canada, I swear never to do it again... and now for the 6th time.

Going East...

We should have more of those around our country!

And less of these...

East bound...

Lonely tree.

Sweet ride.

It was a spectacular scene to see thousands of Canadian Goose birds flying south.

Giant mini wheats.

Farmer's world...
