Ranney Gorge

Ranney Gorge is pretty cool in mu opinion – it’s one of my favourite stops for a quick walkabout or a picnic (or both) if I happen to be near Campbellford.

asdaI usually take a few minutes to enjoy the view of the gorge from the Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site Ranney Falls flight lock – that’s locks 11 and 12. Lock 11 is the downstream of the two and is quite impressive. The two locks provide a lift (or drop) of 48 feet.

That would suggest that the suspension bridge over the gorge is at least 48 feet above the water below, which is one of the reasons that I get a bit apprehensive when I cross the bridge – heights are not my friend.

Even though I don’t like heights, I took the time to shoot a bit of video while tossing some daisies over the railing on the downstream side of the bridge.

I shot a  time lapse video from the locks, the west approach to the bridge, and on the bridge itself.
