Day 2 – Part Dos

16 Jan
So, after we warmed up, ate, and played some cards…

...Steve and Gage playing Go Fish:) Steve and I then played some Rummy...I lost terribly:)

…then we headed up to the Upper Falls…

...this is what you see when you pull into the parking lot for the Upper Falls, the brewery/restaurant...

…we headed to the falls first…

...this is the trailhead...it's a fairly short walk to the falls...

...this is the first glimpse you see of the falls...the boys were like, "How cool!"...it's neat showing them these places as I remember going here with my parents as a kid...

...breathtaking!

...the boys were enthralled with how big these were!

Gage wanted his picture by them...you can see they are across the river and so very huge...

…then you go down 94 steps to close-up viewing area of the falls…

Then you’re there!

...this is looking in the direction of where the Lower Falls are...4 miles down river...

...the mist from the falls freezes the trees nearby...it does look like the Chronicles of Narnia, Pa:)

...the viewing platform extends to what I would say is "in front" of the falls, so, you can get a good pic of all the ice at bottom.

Then it’s off to eat…all this fresh air makes a body hungry:)

...waiting for our food...you can see the big things where they make there behind the guys...it's a very cool place inside...

...my food was almost too pretty to eat:) I had a grilled chicken salad (yummy!) and that's an edible orchid right there in the front...

...the guys all had buffalo burgers and brew pub fries...they LOVED their food and wanted more:)

...the waitress took our pic...she was a very sweet lady...

...a little blurry, but this is as you walk outside the brewery...they have a huge outdoor fireplace to the right of this where you can hang out too...

…then we ended the night by watching the Baltimore/Steelers game…good game by the way…and our favorite when going on vacation in Michigan, we watched The Great Outdoors…:)

...the bear story is our favorite part:)

    Sure does look like a lot of fun, brings back memories of when we went:) It’s neat to see the smiling faces and beautiful snow. The ending is fun:)
