Billy Green Falls: Ontario Waterfalls

As you drive up the escarpment from Grimsby on Centennial Drive, Billy Green Falls is located in the second ravine to your right. It is sometimes called Battlefield Falls. It can get down to a trickle but very nice with a lot of water coming through.

Rating:


Warning: It can be dangerous to view and photograph waterfalls. The footing can be wet and slippery, and an accidental fall can result in serious injury or death. Note also that many sections of waterfalls are on private property. Please respect these rights.

The sad state of the Twin Covered Bridge, Vermont

Twin Covered Bridge, Vermont

Twin Covered Bridge, Vermont


When Built: 1850

Builders: Nichols Powers

Description: This bridge has had an interesting history but is currently in a sad state. It was one of two bridges built on side by side over East creek but was washed away in a flood in 1947 while its twin was destroyed. The flood was aggravated by a power company overextending a dam. The bridge was brought to its current position where it remains as a graffiti covered storage shed. The fact that it was constructed by a great historic builder Nichols Powers makes it’s current fate even sadder.

Pine Martens (Video)

Filed under: Algonquin,Animals,Video — Tags: , , , , — Harold Stiver @ 6:00 am

A couple of clips of Pine Marten taken at Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada.

The first clip is an animal that showed up at the Visitor Center and watched the feeder, looking for a careless bird or squirrel. The second appeared as we were feeding Gray Jays. It snatched a share of the seeds and then withdrew.

The music is by Sara Ayers.
