Jamie, Finn, and I took a short walk along the American side of the Niagara Gorge today, just adjacent to the whirlpool. It was warm with just a bit of a breeze–perfect for a stroll. The whirlpool is a huge pool in the Niagara Gorge where the runoff from the Falls does a quick circle before heading out at an angle toward Lake Ontario. On the Canadian side, there is a cable car of Spanish design that goes back and forth over the whirlpool and has done so for nearly a hundred years. Though we didn’t see it today, there is also, apparently, a jetboat tour of the whirlpool for those who want a closer view.
