Where in the World #111

I was supposed to be 110 I think but Edith posted 110 & I am after her. I got the link up if someone knows how to post the picture from the link I would appercate it.
P.S it is scanded from a post card so the quality is not the best, but you can still see the picture clearly.

On photobucket it gives you a list of options URL and stuff- one of those is image. Or you can just use the button in the reply box.

OK, I fixed the fault with the numbering.

Seeing that there's a statue of bears catching a salmon it must be where they both live, so I'll start with:

North America?

The minimum length of a posdt is 3 character, Maw. So, put in the name of the guesser like some of us do, like @Hans: no or Hans: no.

Is the picture taken in one of Ontario's National Parks?

Han -- no, I am not positive it is lake suerior-- it could be Lake Huron. I believe it is Superior but not 100% sure.

Maw, Thunder Bay is on the shores of Lake `superior (northwest quadrant). But if Kibbie says it is near locks...

Sault Ste Marie?

Kibbie cheets Yes Hans-- can you find where in sault ste marie it is? Sault Ste Marie is located where Lake Superior & Huron meet. That is why I am unsure which lake it is on.

I can only find it is called "Fishing Bears" and it is on the waterfront near the Events Tent (Roberta Bondar Pavilion) in Sault Ste Marie...

On this page: http://boldts.net/Sault1.shtml
it is the last of the three pics.

And, yes, Kibbie cheated, but... I hadn't googled it, only looked at maps of Canada and Ontario.
