In order to get to Edmonton from my home province of Ontario, I had to road trip across the country and since it was my first time doing so I took some pictures of the highlights and would like to share them!

It was my first time driving across the Canada, after having crossed the USA multiple times. I would have to say that it was a completely different experience than the trip across the States for several reasons. First off, when driving on the I-80 in the USA, there are truck-stops, gas stations, hotels, and small towns scattered along the highway in a very high abundance. I would say the exact opposite for this trip, as there seems that the Canadian wilderness is much sparser when it comes to human life. I took the Trans-Canada highway across northern Ontario through the Sue, Wawa, and Thunder Bay. Here are some pictures from the Ontario section:

I had never visited Northern Ontario before, but I wish to soon go back as it is an incredibly beautiful place!

And now for the province signs as I finish the second half of the trip through the flattest provinces known to mankind:
