Waterfalls in Hamilton – Water, Water Everywhere #65

Yesterday Kevin and I drove to Hamilton, ON, to hike around an area known for its waterfalls. Unfortunately it was very icy so the hiking part was cut short but not before we were able to see two of the area’s famous waterfalls. The first one is Webster’s Falls. It is probably the more spectacular of the two because it is bigger and more water falls over the edge of the cliffs. Tews Falls has less water but the view along the gorge is spectacular.

Webster’s Falls

According to the City of Waterfalls site Webster’s Falls is a curtain waterfall with a 22 metre plunge and is found in the Spencer Gorge/Webster’s Falls Conservation Area in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The water flows down Spencer Creek and the falls is the largest in the area.

Water, Water Everywhere – #50

On our little get-a-way last week we stopped at Albion Falls in Hamilton. I love waterfalls and Hamilton has over 100 of them tucked behind the trails of the Niagara Escarpment that cuts through the city. Albion Falls is one of the more popular ones. It is almost as wide (18 metres) as it is tall (19 metres) and is visible from two viewing platforms, but there is currently no access to the bottom.

Hamilton, ON is a university town. Around the campus and the McMaster Hospital is a neighbourhood of family homes and student housing known as Ainslie Wood and Westdale, adjacent to the Royal Botanical Gardens. It is especially beautiful and quaint this time of year because of the changing colours.
