Winter Waterfalls - by Joseph Yu (E奿)


Who can tell me where is the city in the world that has the most waterfalls ... City of Niagara Falls ... no, it's part of the escarpment and that escarpment runs right across the City of Hamilton. With the geological advantage and water flows from high places to lower ground, the City of Hamilton is the City of Waterfalls in the World.

The City of Hamilton has half a million population, but 121 waterfalls.

If you make an effort to see three each time, it will take you 40 some trips. And how many trips would you like to make during the summer? Say, once a month, you can see probably 9 falls a year, and five years to visit all the falls.

But if you can see them during Winter, then that will cut your years from five to two if you are aggressive. I am already sensing that question: What's there to see in Winter? From personal experience and I did it this winter 2008-2009, a lot to see and 'experience'. I brought my wife and my son and made a one day trip to see five falls. But time only allowed four. For winter waterfall seeing, you will use up your energy fast. Why? I will answer that later.

How to plan your waterfalls trip?

What will you see in winter?

Be prepared when doing winter waterfall trip?
