It became hotter an hotter on this day in early September.
Our guests were so excited about the scenery that they decided to tour the "Niagara Glen Nature Reserve" after the brief but exciting trip across the Whirlpool in the cable car.
Because of my poor walking I could not join them and enjoyed an ice cream cone instead.
As we already knew the Glenn can only be reached by climbing many steps in a metal tower. You should be free from giddiness to do that. Please do not be ashamed if that happens to you. One of our test pilots had problems on the CN-Tower!
You will find several marked hiking trails when you arrive on the ground of the gorge. Our visitors did not buy a card and I assume that they walked all of them, because I waited for hours.
The "Niagara Glen" is a Nature Reserve - please obey all the posted regulations.
Interesting rock formations created by erosion over many, many years, rare plants and little animals and birds are additional rewards for your efforts. The main attraction however, is the mighty Niagara River.

You have to climb stairs!

You must wear proper shoes to do this tour.
It would be embarrassing to call a rescue team because of a broken ankle.
Also watch your children and be careful that you do not take a bath in the river. The result could be fatal!
Watch also the jet boats. Eventually, they inspire you to book such a trip.
If you want to take pictures during such a ride protect your camera and be prepared to get wet.
Elizabeth, my wife, wanted to participate in such a tour since years. Friends of her did this and told her exciting stories about it.
However, we never booked a tour after I was not allowed to take a picture of such a jet boat in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Similar stupid things happened also in Germany to me.
Stupidity does not know any borders! I am getting used to that, but it is very frustrating.

Don't be afraid to get a little bit wet!

When our German visitors did not show up after two hours I knew that they loved this tour. I had a good time too, by watching other visitors which came obviously back from a trip with one of the jet boats. Some of them were soaked, but nobody complained.
Finally, our hiking visitors came back too.
As expected they were excited but also exhausted. They were still sweating and I could see several mosquito bites.
They told me that they need to shower and change clothes before having dinner and that they took as requested pictures for me. I used a few of them for this web page.
I asked them about a ride in one of the jet boats. But they were only on a very brief business trip and time was running out. Hopefully, they can do this the next time when they come to Ontario

I purchased some ice cream here

Much work of the artist is hidden behind this fence.

When I discovered this friendly looking gentleman in the store where I had purchased my ice cream I asked him whether he is the artist who is doing all the carvings. He admitted it.
The whole park was obviously his work ground.
Is he a Native or an Asian? I did not ask him.
It was a nice afternoon for our guests and even for me who had to wait. I never could have done all the stairs and the walking.
Elizabeth my wife would never admit any weakness and I was glad that she was busy with her mom and did not have a chance face any risk.
The number of incoming visitors slowed down very fast. The high season for tourism was already over.
Our visitors told me that they had a very good business lunch in one of the well known restaurants for a very moderate price and that the service was excellent, because of the decreased number of guests.

The friendly artist

This "Wood Carving Park" was hidden behind a fence and obviously closed. Sneaky people did funny things to have a brief glance into it. The park was closed and I did not check whether it will be opened by appointment only or at specific times. It was already late afternoon.
