About this Site
I started waterfalling as a hobby in the late 1990s. It combined my interests in Ontario's geography and geology, photography, and the then-new world wide web. I uploaded my first web site in 1999, called "Waterfalls of Southern Ontario." In 2003, along with photographer George Fischer, the first edition of our book entitled "Waterfalls of Ontario" was published by Firefly Books
. I updated the web site to "Waterfalls of Ontario" to complement the book.
When the second edition of our book was published in 2011, another version of the web site was uploaded. This was the first to hold the URL "waterfallsofontario.com". For a trip down memory lane, you can see the 2012 version of the web site at Archive.org.
. Things sure have changed! Finally, in 2018, the third edition of the book was published. By that time, several other editions of the web site had been uploaded. The current edition of the web site is the 6th generation.
This 6th version of the web site is the most complex and pushes my meagre coding skills, as I do not use WordPress. While I plan to stick with this one for a while, in spring 2021, I began to make some subtle and not-so-subtle changes to improve the site.
You will note that I have incorporated about 100 photos that have been provided over the years by visitors this site. This page wouldn't be what it is without their generous help. Thanks everyone - you know who you are! And a special thanks to Dan Good and Jeff Dingwell for helping me to complete the HTML/CSS this time around.
