Today was an amazing day. The ride from Kalamazoo, MI up to Niagara Falls was so beautiful.  We had great weather and the roads were good.  When we arrived at Niagara Falls we checked in to the Sheraton Falls View (Thank you Nita) and the room is on the 27th floor right over the falls.  We almost couldn't leave the room to go and look at the falls close up, but we did and were rewarded with a shower courtesy of the mist coming up from the waterfall. Very Cool!

The view coming into Hamilton Ontario is spectacular; you come in down a big hill and see the city and the lake in the background. It is really breathtaking.

Paul was really tempted to stop in Satharoy, Ontario to see the Titanium plant were they make the 5th wheel that we own but we had Niagara Falls on the agenda and Barb didn’t want to be diverted from the destination. It was a good decision.

Barb is looking forward to seeing the Falls lit up tonight, she loves waterfalls and this is a great one.

I'll add a bit to Barb's entry above.  Niagara Falls was pretty amazing.  To see the shear power is pretty cool but feeling the mist of river water that rises from the river below from the crashing falls is just wonderful.  It is hard to believe that that water can rise so far from the bottom of the falls to where visitors can observe the falls.  We had dinner at a small restaurant overlooking the falls.  Walking along the "fallsview" walkway is beautiful and a lot of fun.  I took a bunch of pictures but will just add a few.  If you have never been to Niagara, take time sometime to visit.  It is worth the visit and be sure to ask for a fallsview room at the Sheraton Fallsview.

It was a short travel day today we only rode 419 miles.
