It is another beautiful day today. Before returning to the USA we stopped for a few more pictures in front of Horseshoe Falls.

It was so interesting to me when I realized that the Canadian side looks like Vegas, whereas the American side has no hotels/motels.

Regardless of the commercialism, Niagara Falls is beautiful!

Our next destination is Kirtland, Ohio, another LDS church site. 

The Community of Christ Church owns the Kirtland Temple...the only way to see the inside is to pay for an hour long guided tour. Time was limited so we settled for just seeing the outside.

The LDS church has restored and rebuilt several of the buildings owned by early church leaders and members.
The Mill

People would bring their ashes to the Ashery and sell them where they would be processed into potash.

This sister missionary is one of Jim's former students who is serving her mission here. She recognized Jim after we were done watching the movie. We frequently run into his students when we are on vacation.
Kirtland is near Cleveland, and we were hoping to have time to visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but it was closed by the time we got there. After dinner at a nice seafood restaurant we drove to Toledo, Ohio and spent the night.
