Today started with a ferry ride across Lake Champlain. For the first time in days, we were treated to sunshine (sorry, friends...) which made the ride extra special. We crossed northern NY for most of the day, landing in Niagra Falls at about 6 PM. The town of Niagra Falls is, well, trashy. It looks like a run down industrial town that has no industry left. Niagra Falls State Park, however, is delightful: clean, easily accessible, and FREE! We walked around for about an hour and got some fun pics (those will be uploaded when I'm not typing at the dinner table in Erie, PA waiting for my pizza to arrive). (Which is just did.) The Falls themselves are quite amazing-- all they were cracked up to be. Ironicly, the American side is not as built up and touristy as the Canadian side. As we headed out of NY, we drove through scattered showers and were followed by some pretty cool rainbows.
So now we're eating (well, almost) and headed for Cleveland where Tom has another light on for us. Tomorrow is Road Warrior day: the hope is to go through Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and into Minnesota. I-90 to I-94. Hey, ho, let's go!
Lots of love goes home to all you. We hope the sun comes out tomorrow!!!
*today's prize is a 4x6 of Niagra Falls if you comment to me with the reference. C'mon, people, I need some serious comment love!
