city of waterfalls

As many of you might not know, my hometown (or the city it's a part of at least) is the waterfall capitol of the world. This may be quite hard to believe because Hamilton, Ontario is also well known as 'Steel City' - a majorly polluted steel manufacturing hub - but in fact, Hamilton is home to a plethora of waterfalls. Because of the escarpment, Hamilton houses over 120 waterfalls. Many of them are small,  but there are several that are literally breathtaking. In the summer, a popular day trip with my friends will be to a random waterfall with a picnic or barbeque. It wasn't as hot out as we had hoped today, so we didn't actually make it under the waterfall, but a friend and I had a fantastic photo shoot at a waterfall near my house anyway.


This particular waterfall is Sherman Falls; it's popular but not quite as high as some of the other ones in Hamilton. Many more waterfall adventures to come this summer!
