Have the Laws of Gravity been suspended?

Well you might think so with the name of the spectacular falls on the lower Saint John River in Saint John, New Brunswick.  Reversing Falls is a famous natural attraction that draws visitors from around the world.  Driven by the mighty tides of the Bay of Fundy the Saint John River is stopped in its tracks twice a day and is forced to run backwards up river creating a class three rapids or falls.  With the exception of the 20 minute “Slack Tide” when the river and the Bay are equal and calm for the rest of the day the River thunders out through the 60 meter wide gorge as a class five rapids.  So the Laws of Gravity are still well in order.  Mother Nature is still in charge and she is putting on a very unique and special show that cannot be seen anywhere else to this spectacular scale at at the World Famous Reversing falls.
