View of the canal to the left and the Niagara river to the right. Located in Tonawanda, NY. Follow the canal and it will take you northeast towards Lockport, NY. Follow the river south and it will take you towards Buffalo, NY. I took this photo from my boat. I always found this view interesting as if a "fork in the road". Head to the left and enjoy a calm serene ride on the canal. Head to the right and prepare to meet the mighty Niagara river with her fast currents.
