From the middle of June until the end of November that year, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers diverted the flow of water over the American Falls so that erosion could be studied to determine if the rock formations at the base could be removed to improve the appearance. It was ultimately decided that the best thing to do was let nature take its course, because the huge pile of rocks may well be holding everything up.
It was a weird thing to see and something I'll never forget.
Here's the view from Prospect Point.
****Well, thanks for letting me indulge myself this week with my nostalgic look at Niagara Falls. Next week, I'll return to my normal Lorain County topics!
