Wawa Geese!

by yooperprof

The big goose!

Wawa means "goose" in the local Ojibwe dialect. It kinda makes sense, you gotta admit!

This is the original Wawa goose, now carefully restored to its original avian splendor. It now ornaments the main parking area for Young's General Store, on the main road into town. You can stop for a photo op, and pick up a tee and other souvenirs at the shop.

The third and smallest of the Wawa geese belongs to the Wawa Motor Inn. It dates from 1961.

I am looking for transportation for two adult males, from Wawa area to the National Park in Pic River on September 9, 2007. Is there any public transportation, as a bus or train or is there any local business that drives that way, where we could hitch a ride. Is hitch hiking legal in Canada? Thank you for your responce to my many questions. Steve Dake

Laws regarding hitchhiking vary from Province to Province. In BC, yes it is illegal to stand directly on the freeway, or for a motorist to stop on the freeway and pick you up, people do it, especially travelling on the major highways in and out of BC, in most cases if your caught standing on the freeway the RCMP will escort you or tell you to get off. Standing on an entrance ramp or on a roadway not designated as a freeway seems to be no problem.

The park is in a remote part of Ontario. It is another 2 hours drive from Wawa. You can try hitchhiking from there, but I'm not sure whether it'll be an easy thing to do in Ontario. You can probably take a greycoach that is heading to Thunder Bay, the next big town. Tell the driver where you like to get off. But you still have to hike a long way (10km+) from the main highway to the park's entrance.

Travel Tips for Wawa

Fresh Water Ocean....

by Greggor58

"South of Wawa.....Lake Superior Provincial Park..."

Wawa is the closest community to Lake Superior Provincail Northern Ontario...its about a ten or eleven hour drive North-West from Ottawa...along what is commonly referred to as the Trans Canada Highway...a road that stretches from Newfoundland on Canada's Atlantic Coast to the tip of Vancouver Island on the Pacific Coast.

The name Wawa comes from the Ojibwa word wewe meaning wild goose.

Lake Superior and Lake Superior Provincial Park are popular destinations for hiking and wildlife observation.Its pretty isolated territory...and its always possible to come across bear,moose,fox and other animals anywhere around here...

Lake Superior Provincial Park,one of Ontario's largest parks, is famous for its rugged and dramatic topographic features. The park's high, rounded hills are remnants of ancient mountain ranges, worn down over time by glaciers and blanketed with glacial sediments. Rivers drop rapidly from the interior highlands of this part of Ontario to the Lake Superior shoreline, creating rapids and dramatic waterfalls. Faults -- places where rock masses were wrenched apart by earthquakes -- shaped the magnificent Agawa Canyon, Agawa Rock, and Old Woman Bay. These are some of Ontario's most breathtaking scenes and have inspired many artists,particularly Canada's Group of Seven.

"Rugged Wilderness...."

The Park facilities are available all year round...although in Winter they are scaled back considerably...but accessible for skiing, snowshoeing and ice fishing.

Summer offers the full benefits of this wild experience offering camping facilities,fishing access, canoe routes bring you to some really marvelous camping spots,wildlife viewing.Iinterpretation guides are available at some of the most interesting spots the Park has to offer.

On the Eastern borders of the Park,along the shore of Lake Superior you will find Agawa Rock...the site of an amazing assembly of ancient rock paintings.

A cliff-face rising 30 meters above Lake Superior is the site of 35 pictographs or Indian rock paintings believed to be centuries old...
