Thunder Bay - Ontario - Day - 1

Day One Dorians Tower
While doing some research on Thunder Bay I came across various pictures of Dorions Tower that continued to pop up. I learned while reading that you are able to climb to the top and I just knew I had to do this. A friend of mine suggested that I connect with his friend Arik who is an amazing guide and rock climber in the area. Arik owns a company in Thunder Bay called Outdoor Skills and Thrills. Only ever rock climbing indoors I knew climbing this pinnacle in nature was going to be a whole new experience I had to get myself ready for. Looking up from the base and witnessing the sheer height of it made it extremely intimidating. The climb was an adrenaline rush I had never in my life felt before. It pushed me both mentally and physically out of my comfort zone and challenged me tremendously to reach the top! When I took my first step up at the top and stood there looking down at the gorge it definitely took my breath away. It was also extremely windy up there haha. I am definitely going to take up rock climbing now because I am officially addicted.
Moraine Creek Falls
I was so lucky to connect with now friend Damien Gilbert, who is a super talented photographer and videographer based in Thunder Bay, prior to me leaving for my trip. Damien spoiled me with his talent during parts of my trip. We both share a love of waterfalls and nature so I felt super blessed to get in front of his camera at the stunning Moraine Creek Falls.
I finished off my day of waterfalls and rock climbing watching the sunset over Ouimet Canyon. Home to super rare arctic plants and stunning cliff formations it was the perfect end to my first day exploring Thunder Bay and the surrounding area.
