Day 6 of the Ride for Miracles for Children’s Miracle Network started in Bayfield, Ontario with about 45 degree weather. Our journey today took us back into the United States at Niagara Falls. We had to make a quick pit stop at the Kitchener Harley Davidson today for an oil change and tire. While there we got to speak a lot with the staff and also were able to help donate some money for a local child fighting their own battle.
We made it to the Ontario side of the Niagara Falls first today. What an amazing sight, the river, the falls, all of it is just to massive and spectacular, it is truly a sight to see. While there, we found out that 150,000 gallons of water per second goes over the falls, that is 9 million gallons per minute. At that rate, it would drain West Lake Okoboji in under just one hour!
We also met back up with Jim today in Niagara Falls on the American side, it is great to have him back with the group! Tomorrow we head out to Avon, Ohio, just West of Cleveland. We also have our live feed back up and going now that we are back on American Cellular towers!
