Hurry....If You Want To Visit Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls...the Honeymoon capitol of the world! Located on the dividing line between Canada and the United States, Niagara Falls is fed by its source, Lake Erie.

BUT...for more than 10,000 years, the location of Niagara Falls has been shifting. Due to erosion, it has been moving upstream at the rate of about 300 feet per century. When it does recede back to Lake Erie, the latter supposedly will drain away and Niagara Falls will be no more!

Your Task: For how many more years can honeymooners expect to make visits to the site of Niagara Falls?
