9th Anniversary at Niagara

Wednesday, Sept 21st was my 9th anniversary!  My husband and I spent the day pretty much walking around.  First we headed to Old Fort Niagara; we drove through the state park and walked along the shore of Lake Ontario (where I found YELLOW beach glass!!).  Then we headed to the fort.  We spent a couple of hours touring the fort; it was pretty neat and plan on returning with the kids!  If you’re even in the Niagara Falls area take the drive along the Rober Moses Pkwy and take a tour yourself- it’s worth it!

After we were done in the fort we lunched in the little village of Youngstown then headed back along the gorge- the Devil’s Hole gorge trail was calling to us!  We took a walk down LOTS of stairs then walk along the gorge for about 1.5 miles (if not more).  The power of the river is amazing that close up.  The water was a beautiful turquoise color and the leaves were just starting to change.  At the other end of the trail we walk up LOTS of stairs then  visited Whirlpool State Park- it’s a big bend in the river where there are lots of rapids and a wicked whirlpool.

We then continued on the Niagara Falls (where we’ve been many times) and just wandered around the souvenir shops for a little while.  A dinner at Duff”s ended our day; we then headed home to pick up the kids!

Here’s a few of my favorites from our day and you can see more in the 2011 photography gallery.  Thanks for looking!
