Niagara Glen


One of our boys took my camera to Niagara with him recently, and came back with some great shots of the autumn colours at Niagara Glen.

Niagara Glen is along the Canadian side of the Niagara Gorge, at the site of the Niagara Whirlpool.  The gorge and whirlpool were created about six to seven thousand years ago as the Niagara River slowly eroded its way through the Niagara Escarpment.  Erosion resistant bedrock forced a right-angle turn in the river's path at the site of the Whirlpool, where the rushing waters are forced into a deep counter-clockwise spin.  Despite being a few kilometres downriver from the Niagara Falls, there is still a considerable amount of mist in the air.
















He also captured these shots of our dogs a few weeks ago.  I think he's going to be getting a camera of his own for Christmas!

  2. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.
    I have a soft spot for Niagara but I've never been there this time of year. We did go in early October once, but just as a quick stopover. I only remember some Tim Horton's pumpkin coffee! We don't have Tim Horton's here.

  4. Gorgeous photos! Yes, definitely get that kid a camera for xmas!

    Ontario's autumn is nowhere near as far along as ours -- all our leaves are long gone here in Alberta. I noticed that just this morning too, when I saw Justin Trudeau and his cabinet walking to Rideau Hall on television amidst all that beautiful fall foliage.

  7. We were up at Niagara Falls less than 2 weeks ago and it was beautiful. Your post has convinced us we need to get a passport so we can trek on over to Canada.
