I had an inspection out in Castleford, ID this morning (not far from the Balancing Rock) & as I was driving out I saw a sign for a State Park that I haven’t seen before, “Niagara Springs”. So on my way back out I wanted to go have a look.
I followed the signs when suddenly the pavement came to an abrupt halt.So I put the ‘Ol Girl in “Baja Mode” (basically just saying “Screw it…) & blasted down the hill. At the bottom of the hill the road went back to asphalt once again, for a whopping 100 ft or so, then back to dirt. I knew I was still on track when I saw this sign…The quail has landed! A little further down on the right was the steelhead hatchery.Pulling in to check it out, there was a little park like setting that quite was pleasing to the eye. You can see some young Steelhead in the water. Across the way you could her the thunder of the falls.
Now I can add to the list the Niagara Springs Falls. Across the way from the hatchery is a little spot to pull over. The falls are a quick 2 minute walk, maybe even less, away. Here’s a video capturing the magic!
I could have stayed here for quite some time, but somebody has to pay for this party. So back to the office to write up the inspection. But first, one last shot of the canyon… And Baja Mode back up the to the rim.All in all, not a bad day. Only 2k to go. The TSX is still running strong. Although I will admit there has developed a rather annoying vibration coming from the glove box once in a while. But a quick bump Fonzy style takes care of it. Oh, & the Nav. OH THE NAV! So slow these days! Not sure what to do since Acura discontinued update discs for my car. I guess I’m supposed to go buy a new one? HA! I’ll use google maps & duct tape my phone to the dash before I give up my trusty steed! Until she break down. Then she’s off to the crusher. OK, maybe not.
2,000 To Go!
