Haven’t posted here in quite a bit, but I couldn’t help stopping to take a few shots on my ride the other day. Hope they post ok, usually they are sideways or whatever. That red building is near where I started. it starts off with a pretty good climb I was just grinding it out when I looked to my right and saw this . Had to stop and take it all in. That’s the lower Niagara (after the falls.
Moving upstream (and therefore) mostly uphill. The buildings you see right of the falls are on the Canadian side. And the mural is underneath the whirlpool bridge (I actually liked the shadows from the bridge as much as the mural)
It keeps getting closer! Wow what a ride I would recommend it to anyone coming to the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area. All paved paths separate from the road the entire way. Best done not during the peak tourist season.
And finally I was trying to post a video of the whirlpool jet boat ride that went by but could only post this screenshot. That smoked glass comes off the boat and you get soaked on it in the summer. The water is Still a bit too chilly for that.
One last comment, if you zoom in on the Canadian falls in that second to last photo you’ll see the maid of the mist. Awesome tourist attraction that’s well worth the price.
It goes full throttle right at the base of the falls and if you are on the top deck you get completely surrounded by a curtain of water. Just a very unique place on the planet that you can’t get to otherwise.
