20 miles west of town there is Kakabeka Falls. You can just imagine the pissin' and a moaning' when early voyageurs came upon this portage looking for a route west. The lower area of falls is breeding ground for sturgeon which as of a couple years ago we can no longer keep. The bridge you see is for access across Kaministiqua River as this is a provincial park

This would have been a walk in the park compared to Great Dog Portage 25 miles to the north where the ascent was 500' over a 1 mile stretch. I have walked Great Dog Portage but only carrying a few beers and lunch and it was a challenge. Take a good woman to carry the pelts and canoes on that route

We visited the falls many times when I was a kid, had cousins in Fort William and spent some summer holidays there. Thanks for the memories the pic. brought back.

Not much here I guess, pretty hard to top some of the stuff posted! About 30 miles west is Mt. Rushmore and 25 miles north is Sturgis--bikers know what I'm talking about.

Thanks All, Out of all the posts I have done, this has turned into a real educational and interesting one. I did this mainly because of the activity that SpaceX is doing in my area, and I live (and go to) the largest Military installation in the US, Ft. Hood. I also retired from there. There has been many posts others made of places I would like to visit, and some very interesting sites posted. I am like some of you that moved out to a quiet "presumed" area, Cattle and Coyote were about the only noises I heard when I moved here, but oh well, what can you do? Keep them coming.

Ft Hood is largest in area, but Ft Bragg has the most troops. LOL

Well lets see.  The town that I live in was once the final home to Joseph Priestley the man who discovered Oxygen.  His home still stands and was open as a museum for many years.

 

https://en.wikipedia...Priestley_House

 

Across the river about two miles away is the city of Sunbury.  Thomas Edison lived here for a short time and tested the first successful 3 wire light bulb in the City Hotel.  The building is known now as the Hotel Edison.

 

https://en.wikipedia...,_Pennsylvania)

 

Sunbury is also home to the longest inflatable Dam in the world.

 

https://en.wikipedia...er_Memorial_Dam

 

The next town to the north of me and on the opposite side of the river is Lewisburg.  Lewisburg is home to a Federal Penitentiary known as "The Big House".  The Lewisburg Penitentiary has housed some noteworthy individuals including John Gotti and Jimmy Hoffa.

 

https://en.wikipedia...iary,_Lewisburg

 

The next town to the east of me is Danville.  Danville was once home to Montour Iron Works.  Montour Iron Works produced the first "T" rail for the railroad industry.

 

http://www.itourcolu...ville-t-rail-2/

 

A little further southeast is Elysburg.  Elysburg is home to Knoebels amusement resort.  Knoebels is and has always been a family run park and is the largest free admission amusement park in the nation.  It has some good food as well and is a great place to go in the evening or a sunday afternoon for some good eats or a few rides for fun.

 

https://en.wikipedia...musement_Resort

 

South of me about 50 miles or so is Hershey Pa.  I am sure most people know why that town is famous.

 

https://en.wikipedia...y,_Pennsylvania

 

So I guess there are a few things near me.

In 1996 I was at Mount Rushmore and went by sturgis. I was a kid but I want to go back out that way. I loved the area.

Glad you loved the area Aaron! Did you get out to the Badlands? That is another pretty cool place to visit east of here also. I was a 10 year old kid in 1966---LOL! Anyway, if you get a chance to come out this way sometime, let me know. We have room for campers.
