Letter: Boat trip down river was fun, informative

Boat trip down river was fun, informative

I had the hugely educational and entertaining opportunity of taking the 1½-hour boat trip from Canalside up and down the Buffalo River. I’ve lived in Western New York for 84 years. The only grain silos I had ever seen are the few you can see from the highway.

This trip takes you through the massive areas of grain storage that made Buffalo the grain center of the world for a century – endless grain storage towers and elevators that cannot be seen from the road. Many are still in operation.

I highly recommend this boat trip while the weather holds. But I warn you: If you are concerned about GMOs in your food supply, you will see what you are up against.
