June 21: It was a rainy day as we visited the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Museum in Regina.

NEXT  
The museum explains the history of the RCMP and why it was formed Next the museum shows the present day activities and duties of the organization. Looks like they've got a new recruit... and he's even wearing boots. Mid-day we enter the province of Manitoba June 22: This is the Canadian Mint in Winnipeg where they not only - make Canada's coins but also the coins of up to 80 other countries.
Larry had to check out the bear found in one of the shops - in The Forts, a shopping and restaurant complex in Winnipeg. A building in downtown Winnipeg offering a nice reflection. June 23: We continue our trip east, and not far from Winnipeg cross the Longitudinal Centre of Canada We enter the province of Ontario. This is the Trans-Canada Highway... under construction
It looks more like a gravel country road. We ended up following a pilot car for several miles through the construction zone. This is Nestor Falls in the town of Nestor Falls, Ontario. As we approached the border crossing at Fort Frances to International Falls, Minnesota, we started seeing - these signs indicating long waits. 1.5 hours to U.S. border?  We were less than two miles away from it.
