    Falls rock scaling operation underway

    No Comments

    From Niagara This Week:

    Visitors to Niagara Falls may have noticed a crane dangling workers over the ledge above the lower observation deck of Journey Behind the Falls on Monday.

    The workers were chipping away at loose rock in a process called ice-jacking on the Canadian side of the Horseshoe Falls, 13 storeys above the falls basin.

    Throughout the winter, water can creep into the crevices of the rock and through the freezing process slowly loosen pieces of rock as the frozen water expands, which then poses a danger to people standing on the observation deck below.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara Parks will conduct its annual rock-scaling operations along the Niagara Gorge wall on the Canadian side of the Horseshoe Falls Monday to Thursday, weather permitting.

    The activity removes any loose rocks and debris that built up during the winter months.

    It’s intended to ensure the safe operation and opening of the lower observation deck of the Journey Behind the Falls attraction, scheduled to open Friday.

    Top 10 Canadian places featured on Instagram: From Vancouver International Airport to Niagara Falls

    From the National Post:

    Instagram recently revealed its list of the top places in Canada featured in Instagram photos this year. Given the size of the population (and some of the events going on this year), it’s not surprising that southern Ontario holds down seven of the top spots. You’ll also find British Columbia and Montreal. Here’s the list.

    1. Niagara Falls. One of the most photographed places in the world, Niagara Falls has been attracting tourists for centuries. You’ll get great shots from the boat rides below the falls with Hornblower Cruises, or you can try something in winter or at night with the floodlights on. Also worth trying is the Journey Behind the Falls, where you can take an elevator deep inside the rock behind the falls and also clamber out onto a platform for nice viewing.
