While on zoo business in the area, we visited the spectacular Niagara Falls. Going off season was a great decision. Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that straddle the international border between the Canadian province of Ontario and the U.S. state of New York. Here is a link to some of the wackadoodles who have dared to go over the Falls.  My favorite story is from 1911 when the infamous Bobby Leach plunged over the Falls in a steel barrel.   Bobby broke both kneecaps and his jaw during his daring event. Years later while touring in New Zealand, Bobby slipped on an orange peel and died from complications due to gangrene.
