    What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?
     
  2. Niagara Falls!! Do I get a prize.:D
     

  3. Anything moving towards Buffalo is going backwards.....oh wait, I'm going there soon and that's where I'm from......

    Rich Stadium in the early years....the Bills marched backwards for many seasons.....even with the help of the famous "non guilty" juice.

    I agree with BKR, but is it really backwards for a river running north in the northen hemisphere?

    Good job . The reason that it is moveing backwards is because the falls erode at 2' per day due to the millions of gallons of water that goes over every hour .
     
  5. Phil,

    I believe your rate of erosion is way overstated here. At that rate it would be eroding nearly 700' per year. I believe I read some recent records indicating that the rate is in the neighborhood of 1-2' per year. At one time it was record to be considerably higher but it has slowed its erosion.
