About a third of the way to Detroit (our next stop), on the edge of Lake Ontario, is Hamilton, ON (Canada). We just wanted to stop because we don’t like to travel too many hours on any day.
Well, it turns out that Hamilton is the Waterfall Capital of the World. According to Smithsonian Magazine, due to its location on the Niagara Escarpment, a rock ridge stretching almost 1,000 miles across the Great Lakes region, Hamilton is home to over 100 waterfalls.
Waterfalls generally means great hiking and that is what we did here for two days.
The first day we hiked to and around Tiffany Falls.
Today we hiked to Dundas Peak.
Then we visited Tews Falls. It is the highest Falls in Hamilton and advertised as almost as high as Niagara. We chuckled when we saw just a dripping of water. Great hiking though!
