niagara peninsula scenery

here are some scenes from the niagara peninsula, specifially near lake erie. my grandparents have a cottage in the area, so i am familiar with the areas near buffalo.

the scene from point abino on a humid day.



the buffalo yacht club on the left, and crystal beach in the center, with abino bay in the foreground.



on a clear day, buffalo is easily visible.



looking towards crystal beach.



the allegheny mountains, as seen from point abino.



buffalo to the left, lackawanna in the middle, and southern erie county to the right.



a close-up of some of the towns along route 5. i'm guessing these towns are places like derby, lake view, mount vernon, and wanakah. i've never been to any of those towns so i have no information to determine what towns i saw.



looking at all the sailboats sitting in the water of abino bay.



from left to right, you can see crystal beach, windmill point, buffalo on the other side of the border, lackawanna, woodlawn, and the allegheny mountains.



cedar bay, near port colborne. the point abino lighthouse is visible from this area.





a farm located along highway 3, outside of port colborne.



the scene from the sand dunes at sherkston shores. point abino is sticking out into the lake.



pleasant beach



the allegheny mountains in new york, which are clearly visible on a clear day.



point abino and the allegheny mountains.



the mountains finally fade into the horizon. judging from the angle of the beach, these mountains appear to be just south of silver creek and dunkirk, close to jamestown.



another picture of the beach from the sand dunes.



the same area, but now down by the water.





the area is a nice place to go sailing.



when canal days was being held in port colborne, large sailing ships could also be seen on the lake.





small waves roll in to shore, and the allegheny mountains in new york make a nice backdrop.



a beautiful setting along six mile creek in fort erie as the sun begins to set.

Spectacular pics.
I love it around there!

Too bad Lake Erie is a spetic tank. I've always had a soft spot for these regions.

where along lake erie have you been? i've found lake erie to be some of the clearest and freshest water i've seen. if you think lake erie is bad, don't come down here to delaware or philadelphia to see the delaware river. it's silty, murky, and is much more polluted from all the industries around it, especially the oil refineries.

/\ lol really? I find anywhere along Lake Erie to be pretty nasty.
Maybe I'm just spoiled?
Lake St. Clair is pretty bad as well.
The further 'downriver' you go with-in the great lakes system, the dirtier it gets. Lake Erie is the second last in the chain, hence it is the second dirtiest.

Lake Erie is clean. Especially since the zebra mussels came in. You can see the bottom, where before it was all algae. Wish all the great lakes are like Lake Erie.

Around Lake Erie is actually very nice and in the Niagara area. Feels so small town-like, never been near the beaches though but they look as good as other ones I have seen.

/\ Thank you. LOL.

Lake Erie is scum.
And seeing the bottom in those places isn't exactly appealing. It can mean the acid content is serverly high.
Like I said, I love these regions...I live 20-30 minutes away from Lake Erie...but it's not clean.

Lake Superior is cleaner.
Lake Huron is cleaner.
Lake Michigan is actually a tad dirtier
Lake Ontario is dirtier.
Lake Erie comes third out of five.
