|Both Falls from bridge|
|American Falls from CA side|
After doing the Erie Canal cruise and then visiting the falls the inquisitive mind starts thinking about the St. Lawrence Seaway and how ships travel between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. The answer, the Welland Canal (link to information http://www.wellandcanal.com/ ). Here is a link with lots of information about the entire St. Lawrence Seaway. This link goes to the History page but there is a lot more information including a Seaway map with current ships in transit (http://www.greatlakes-seaway.com/en/seaway/history/index.html). In order to tie the St. Lawrence Seaway with the history of shipping on the Great Lakes, here is another interesting link I found: http://www.linkstothepast.com/marine/index.php.
