Grand Canyon at Dusk

I first visited the Grand Canyon with my children and it is one of their favorite travel memories. At that time you could drive yourself around to the various lookouts, while the pressure of large crowds has meant the institution of a shuttle nowadays. The massive crowds even outside of the summer months has made the experience more frustrating but it is still a place you should visit if you can. The views will still stop you in your tracks.

While Otter Falls is not as spectacular as the other Agawa Canyon Falls, Bridal Veil and North and South Black Beaver Falls, it is still a great place to visit in the fall. The Algoma Central Railway takes a four hour trip to the Canyon from Sault Ste Marie.
