    Tom, since you like to take waterfall panoramas, then try this one: www.ontarioparks.com/park/kakabeka falls Will open in a new tab or window The location is not too far from you, and the drive along Lake Superior would be very enjoyable due to ice on the lake and here it is early June. I was there when I was a kid back in '53.
