Ontario Waterfalls

I have a real love of photography, and a favourite subject for many photographers is of course, waterfalls.

To get to many waterfalls it's probably wise to have a GPS with you, both to get you to the waterfalls, and then get you safely back to your car! I've been looking for the past year or so for a GPS file that includes the local waterfalls as waypoints, but to no avail. So, I decided to create my own.

This little project is on Google Maps, and can easily be converted to a GPX file to download into your GPS using the GPSVisualizer converter. At some point, I will post a link to the finished GPX file, but only after I get all the waterfalls entered.

Here are the sources I've used:

http://www.hamiltonnature.org/localspecies/waterfalls.doc

...and here is the map. It's unfinished at the time, although I started with the top 10 list so the most picturesque falls are included.

Still to do: finish entering the rest of the waterfalls, add keywords such as "easy/moderate/difficult" and "private/public", but that's a much lower priority. For that information, download the doc file listed above.

Here are some websites I found that may be of interest:

If you know of any other websites or documents that could help me with this project, feel free to leave me a comment. Comments are moderated, so your comment won't appear right away, only after I've reviewed it.
