Sometimes, it is a good idea to pick up a couple extra crew when planning a long passage and you just have to take what's available.

Bingo... people on this forum are sharp!

1969 the rerouted the water so that they could study the falls. Pretty cool story and more pics.

http://photoblog.nbcnews.com/_news/2010/12/16/5661928-niagara-falls-without-water-as-seen-in-1969?lite

that story came from Rafael Ortiz deciding not to Kayak the falls.
