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.

We go for the tour of the Mint, something you can't do at a U.S. mint.  - The tour proved to be very interesting, but no cameras were allowed inside. Larry and Dale at the Forks National Historic Site in downtown Winnipeg. - This is a 9 acre park at the Junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers. Bill and Dale at the Forks.  The park has a river walk, theme pavilion, shops and restaurants and a skateboard plaza. Larry had to check out the bear found in one of the shops.
A building in downtown Winnipeg offering a nice reflection. Ken and Dale 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.
