Niagra Falls

Wow…. not much more to say. Did “Maid of the Mist” today and rode right up to the falls. Walked the foot bridge to Canada today and took a ride 4 miles uptown to the the Niagra Power Authority Power station per a special reqest from Cathy. It reminded me of the Hoover Damn. The difference here is that they saved the Falls by building the damn into the side of the river downstream and feeding it by diversion pipes upstream.
