A Walk Before Winter

This is a quick photo taken on Niagara St. near Forest Ave. The shelter is located on the Scajaquada Bike Path.

The bridges in the rear are the Scajaquada Expressway on the left sweeping around to merge with the Niagara Thruway along the Niagara River and Black Rock Canal.

The area is quite historic as it was in the center of activities in the War of 1812. Scajaquada Creek empties into the Black Rock Canal nearby. It went directly into the Niagara River in 1812, before the canal was built.

The Commodore Perry referred to is Oliver Hazard Perry , known as the hero of the Battle of Lake Erie.
