BEFORE AND AFTER: June 7th Edition

Today’s edition is a very easy one. I quickly chose a picture from a past tour and, unlike yesterday, I knew right away where I’d have to go to replicate the scene. When you see this, please keep in mind that the “before” and “after” pictures only have to meet the fairly low standard of AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE. Thank you.

June, 2014. Niagara Falls, Ontario. I knew this would be an extremely touristy area, so I figured I’d just take a look at the famous falls and breeze on by. I can’t explain what happened, but I ended up spending over an hour here. The view, the roar, and the misty overspray coming from the falls really are quite impressive.

June 7, 2020. Hastings, Minnesota. The Vermillion River Falls also has a nice view, a thunderous roar, and a mist that rises up from the bottom. I ended up spending over two minutes here.

Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.

    Do I perceive someone thinking ‘barrel challenge’?
    Nice photos, I do remember the one of Niagara from your journal.
    Been to Minnehaha Falls, missed the one in Hastings. šŸ™
