Niagara Issues - Ravine


This image looks down a truncated stream ravine just downstream (north) of the Fish Creek outfall at the base of the Escarpment and gorge. The first view is standing on a path looking down the bank to the Niagara river, perpendicular to the stream flow. The upper reaches of this stream are not evident but perhaps are associated with a little pool at the base of Scoville's Knoll (Oak Hill) where the knoll abuts the slope of the spoil area. The second image is on the Niagara river shoreline looking up the stream ravine. Stream flow here is seasonal, the bed often appearing dry in autumn.
