Welland Canal Lock 1
I’ve had a busy evening so I only have time to post one picture tonight. This is the entrance to the first lock in the Welland Canal which goes from St. Catharines at Port Weller on Lake Ontario to Port Colborne on Lake Erie. The canal is basically a bypass for Niagara Falls. We were able to have the lock to ourselves and they are huge. There are 8 locks and the length is 261.8 meters and or 859 feet. The lift of the first lock is about 14 meters or 46 feet.
