TasteCamp Niagara 2011


TasteCamp is coming to Niagara in 2011.  The concept for TasteCamp is a simple one: getting enthusiastic journalists and bloggers together in a region that is new to them to taste as much wine as possible and speak to as many winemakers as possible over the course of a weekend. Most smaller, lesser-known wine regions in the world would love to get their wines in front new audiences, it can be a challenge. With TasteCamp, the new audience comes to them. This is not a junket — attendees pay their own travel expenses — including for their hotel rooms — and meals. Through generous sponsors, some meals may be deeply discounted.

The Hidden Entrance to the Blue Ghost Tunnel

Part 16 of a collection about the Merritton Train Tunnel that runs under the 3rd Welland Canal. Look forward to more newspaper clippings, photos and videos from what is now known as, The Blue Ghost Tunnel.

This is video of the hidden entrance (east end) of the Blue Ghost Tunnel. Many people have been searching for directions but it really is one of those places that can’t be described. It’s a good hour long hike over streams and through dense forest.
