He captured the ice flow on video and posted it to his YouTube channel, where it was picked up by Digg, giving river watchers around the world the chance to sit and gaze at the ice crashing over the waterfall on its journey toward the Saint Lawrence River. Watch the strangely soothing footage above, then start planning your own Canadian getaway.
