Waterfalls to the West (aka Magnaball Trip Part 2)

After the Merriweather Phish show, we drove straight up through Pennsylvania and into New York, and straight to Four Mile Creek Campground on Lake Ontario.
None of us has ever been to a Great Lake before, and it was quite beautiful. 

If you squinted, you could see Toronto across the lake.  The campground has a small rocky beach, perfect for skipping rocks and gathering wildflowers.

We spent a couple days on the western edge of NY.  Reed is really into architecture, and we got to take a house tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin D. Martin complex in Buffalo.  So cool!
We ate buffalo wings at the Anchor Bar, which is the bar that invented them.
We found a swimming beach on Lake Ontario.

We saw the powerful Niagara Falls!
We rode the iconic Maid of the Mist and felt the waterfall's rush at Cave of the Winds.

After 2 fun days, we packed up our tent, took a final walk on the rocky beach of Lake Ontario, picked out a rock to take home, and headed on our way...
