I have decided with the abundance of waterfalls in a short distance of me, I should get out and visit them. I often forget about the places to explore in my own backyard.
We visited Balls Falls at the end of August to find it completely dried up. The drought in Ontario has not only been hard on farmers, but many of the waterfalls in the area are suffering too. The falls were gone and most of the river bed resembled a parched desert.
We did research with that in mind and discovered that Albion Falls was still flowing. Albion Falls is beautiful with high cliffs surrounding the falls to watch the water below. There are large rocks and pools of water to explore. The biggest downfall is that its so easily accessible from the road that the falls are packed with visitors. If you have a few hours on a weekend afternoon, it is well worth a visit though. How often do you get such beautiful views, so close to home?
We found it particularly nice to hike the cliffs across from the falls and enjoy the view while having a bite of lunch. What are your favourite waterfalls to explore?
