April 6 - Ainslee and I Conquer the Niagara Gorge!

This past Good Friday, Ainslee and I decided to do something we had never done before... explore the Niagara Gorge. Our first mission was to travel down one of those galvanized steel staircases (you know, the ones where you can see all the way down to the bottom) before we got to the path. From there, you could go in two directions: up the river towards Queenston Heights, or down the river towards the whirlpools and Niagara Falls. We decided to head towards the whirlpools.

The weather was absolutely perfect for a hike along the Niagara River. I can honestly say that I look forward to my next visit to the Niagara Gorge when spring is in full gear. Till next time, 

yours truly.
