Pennsylvania, New York, and Ontario
I guess it has been a few days since I blogged. Since then, we passed through the Erie region of Pennsylavia and northwestern New York on our way to Ontario. We took today (Friday) off for rest. We expect to ride straight through for the final 650 miles over 5 or 6 days.
We stopped an did some touristy things over the past few days -- making the trip fun again. Stopping to talk to the locals makes a world of difference.
Some advice. If you have not yet visited the falls, and plan to, don't stay long. You can fully experience the falls in only a few hours, there is nothing else to do here, and it costs a fortune to stay. $3 can of soda. $50 entrees in bad restaurants. %7 surcharge on everything for currency conversion and/or GST. Oh, and the falling US dollar against the rising Canadian dollar is not helping either.
That said, the falls are impressive. It's worth a visit if you are nearby...
