Don't know how to resize the pic. But that was the view out of our room at the Falls View Marriott. I was a bit out of my league but what the hell we only stayed two nights. The breakfast for 6 people was $145.00.

All had a good time, other than it rained all day Saturday. Been busy trying to catch up at work, I will post some pics soon. We had a fabulous view out our Hotel window.

|Nice! Have a good trip. Post a pic or two.|
(wouldn't it be great to have them open it up to see the FULL waterfall?)

|Band that was playing down there on the riverfront in front of the Ren Cen next to Hart Plaza? .... Took me a bit to place them even though I knew the songs they were playing (jamming, I might add), Loverboy! HAAAA!|

|Finally getting around to pictures. Here is one I took just for you (and DF if he shows his furry head again), HB. Cannon in Detroit pointing right into Windsor! |
Hell if those Ontario bastards are gonna swim OUR half of the river! We'll blow up the casino!

|Whatta day. Another glorious one sailing around Lake St. Clair. Maybe I should start posting Cristopher Cross songs? "The canvas can do miracles....Saaaaaailing...!" |
Interesting shot. Detroit on the right, Windsor, Ontario on the left. The Ren Cen in the distance between my friends' heads.
Damn, I really miss the sound and sight of the freighters passing. Canada in the background.
Anyone who counts Detroit as being "down and out" is a damn fool. Plus, we are kicking ASS in baseball !!!

|Well, a "travel" is accurate but a "vacation" to the place where you grew up? Anyhoo, it fits.|
Bud, for you. The picture I asked you to take if you came to Detroit. The Metal Mecca that is Harpos! OLD school architecture to be sure. Went by it yesterday as I spent most of the day today prepping and sailing in two lightening class sailboat races around Lake St. Clair. Anyone who knows sailboats will understand it.
Nice shot of Harpos but, as I said, it sits in no-man's-land. Funny as I went for a run just before and decided not to clean up as I was going to see some friends who are mechanics in the city. So, I hope you appreciate that I took shots of this building (and surrounding area that I'll post upon request) wearing brilliant-colored running shoes / tech shirt / shorts. HA! The drunks that seem to live on the corner behind where I took this shot were staring at me like some sort of alien. Still, anything for the shot!

|"...kitchen catches fire..." heh. Hope not. Better to see Old Faithful than a New Unexpected.|

|yellowstone is similar to the rest of the rockies, except for the hydrogeological thingys, and bison. I live where the buffalo used to roam, but in yellowstone, holy crap they are everywhere.|
so you get cool mountains, waterfalls, canyons, wildlife, and then you get bison, gysers, mud pits, hot springs. Think it was 89 I went as a kid, so its been a while.
Saskatoon will only be a blast if the hotel kitchen catches fire.

|Never been to Yellowstone. Chatted up a Ranger when hiking around the Rockies a while back. She used to work there. Just like the islands of Hawai'i, you can't get a "which is better" answer out of them. Both parks (like the islands) are spectacular for different reasons. |
Do give a full report after your trip to Yellowstone. Safe travels to Saskatoon as well, LOL! Sounds like a blast.

|You would have LOVED the hikes, compadre. As you saw the shot of how the clouds roll in, that is your only true "enemy" - the weather. Not that a bear could live up there but I had to look up how many people died up on the volcano. Look up the one who was washed over the falls with his daughter. Flash flood took them. |
Odd to read the comments. While their family sued and won a "no-fault" settlement of $5 mil US, the opinions were divided. Yeah there should have been a sign but the guy should have known better.
Beautiful island. That makes three islands for me. A little on the commercial side but if you catch a good day, the hiking (and camping, so I am told) is outstanding.
