    One of my favorite locations.

    Ah, one of my favorite places to shoot! I live very close to The Great Falls - it's amazing how many people don't even know they exist. It's only 2nd in size to Niagara Falls on the east coast. Once or twice each year they divert the water through the hydroelectric plant and literally turn the falls off so the boy scouts can come in and clean up the debris (and bodies) that collect. It's really eerie to see them dry. You can check out my Flickr page for a series of photos from The Great Falls. BTW, nice video!

    Great place ... Nice video

    I've been there a few times. You guys should visit after it drops well below freezing. The falls look nice partially frozen.

    Right next to it is Hinchliffe Stadium which has been abandoned for many years now. You can easily "break" in and look at the graf.. er.. artwork. Its been well over 10 (maybe 15) years now... dug this snapshot up which was done on film... so I know its been a long time.


    For those not familiar with the area... I wouldn't go after dark alone. Someone a while back posted a photo from down at the bottom of the falls.. I have no clue how they got access. It was tightly secured when I last looked.
