For this week’s #67 challenge I have photos of Tiffany Falls to share with you. Earlier this week my husband and I had quite the adventure getting to this beautiful waterfall in Ancaster, ON.
Ancaster is just south of Hamilton and Tiffany Falls is just one of over 100 waterfalls in the area. Two weeks ago this waterfall was completely frozen. You could actually walk behind the frozen wall of ice. Since then a lot of the snow has melted but in the wooded areas the snow melted and froze again so the trails were very icy. Before we started out my husband lent me his ice cleats but that meant he didn’t have anything on the bottom of his shoes.
There were parts of the path, especially when it went uphill that were so slippery I didn’t even trust the cleats. At one point a nice gentleman who also had cleats on his shoes helped me over a rise on the path. Unfortunately it was at this point that my husband stopped and didn’t try to get closer to the falls. Luckily he was able to see it from where he stopped and his camera allowed him to zoom in and get a closer look. I walked all the way to the lookout. In some of the photos you’ll notice that there is a family that went right to the base of the falls.
When we got home I immediately ordered a second pair of ice cleats.
