I’ll keep this post short and sweet. We had a great day and hit up Niagara Falls after a full breakfast at Subway. It was a beautiful day and we got our exercise in for the trip. Here are some photos of the falls:

They're going to get a little wet.

After walking around a bit, we decided we wanted to get a closer look and get a little wet. We heard the Cave of the Winds was a good time, so we decided to hit that up. We had to walk back to our bikes to drop a few things off and upon arriving at the bikes we noticed we parked next to a truck and trailer that belonged to an Amish family! We couldn’t get to the Amish so they came to us! There was at least 10 kids and 4 adults all in this truck and trailer! It was amazing to see with their cute dresses, head caps, bowl shaped haircuts and full beards (now that’s just the men…  Just kidding). Only one guy spoke to us for a good 10 minutes while everyone else watched us with open eyes of curiosity. ‘You must spent time cleanin’ dem bikes do ya?’ and ‘They sure are pretty’. He was in awe when we told him/them how far we’d come. It was a fun time and they were really friendly… we met the family but we forgot to ask where they have their hidden villages… maybe next time!

We hit up the Cave of the Winds, which was fun… but they should really mention you don’t get to go in any Caves or behind the Falls as was permitted in the past.

We walked around some more to dry ourselves off then headed to the city of Buffalo to check it out.  Some nice, interesting, and old buildings there.

We finished our day back at camp and hung out with our friend that visited us the first night, the next morning, and then again this night:

Tomorrow we are going through the Adirondack Mountains and stopping in the city of Prattsburgh… should be a beautiful ride!
