Right - Tree-lined section of Hwy 11 & Hwy 71, about 2 km west of Fort Frances. This wonderful stretch of highway extends for about 4 km west of Fort Frances. It is very rare to see trees lining a King's Highway today. Most roadside trees were cut down in the 1950s and 1960s, as part of highway "improvement" projects. While the trees are a potential collision hazard, they greatly enhance the aesthetics of the road environment. The placement of a steel guide rail along the road would prevent the possibility of tree collisions, while still preserving the pleasant atmosphere of this stretch of highway. It is very unfortunate that this strategy was not employed decades earlier on other Ontario highways, before millions of roadside trees were stripped and extirpated from the landscape in a hasty approach to improving highway safety.

Left - The Canadian Prairies actually begin in the western portion of the Rainy River District. The last 20 km of Hwy 11 runs straight across a flat plain into the town of Rainy River. The scenery found here is unlike anywhere else in Ontario. With each passing mile, the scenery along Hwy 11 increasingly resembles the vast plains of Manitoba. It is quite a different scene from the sprawling urban centres of the Greater Toronto Area, located almost 1,900 km to the east down Hwy 11.

Right - The Town of Rainy River is actually located about 1 km east of the International Bridge to Baudette, Minnesota. This photo shows Hwy 11 between the Hwy 600 Junction and the Town of Rainy River.

Right - On September 3, 2006, I finally completed my quest to drive every provincial highway in Ontario. For the past few years, I have slowly chipped away at Ontario's vast highway network. By 2006, I only had a few scattered sections of highway in Northwestern Ontario left to complete. The last section of highway that I completed was Hwy 600, leading into Rainy River. This was a major personal milestone for me that took many years to accomplish. While there are many people to whom I owe thanks for their assistance in this accomplishment, I am particularly indebted to author Ron Brown, whose wonderful books about Ontario encouraged me to explore this intriguing province from end-to-end.
