Thunder Bay and Silver Islet
The road into Thunder Bay, Ontario curves by mountainous sentinels to this city of over 100,000. The city is not overcrowded and coexists nicely with the inland mountains and the shore of Lake Superior. North of Thunder Bay is Sibley Peninsula. Much of the peninsula is Sleeping Giant Provincial Park and its many lakes and campgrounds. At the tip of Sibley Peninsula is Silver Islet, one of the most beautiful and populated "ghost towns" I have ever seen.
Before 1900, a tiny island off the coast
yielded over $3,000,000 in silver. While apparently known as a ghost town there are residents and vacationers who I am sure would disagree with such a moniker.
