... through. We finally made it to Niagara Falls (the city itself is a little sad, and when the sign says welcome to Little Italy, it lied). We made it to the park, and lucky us, got free parking because we were coming so late in the day. I should have hopped on the last trolley down to the falls, but I wavered, and then my arms got too tired from the hike from the parking lot.

... into the town planned in the evening. Shellie and I were disappointed about this as we wanted to explore the area more and check out the tattoo shop, we couldn't see the point in hanging around a campsite for four & a half hours instead but Casey said no, so back to camp we went (note to self: deduction from his tip at the end of the trek!!).
