Well, it's been about 15 years since I've seen this backyard beauty so when I had the chance to go there this week, I was thrilled--and it was to the Canadian side to boot! We had what they call a "Falls view" room in the hotel and a couple of these pictures were taken right through the window. (We were attending the CWR, Communicators of Women Religious conference---the great people who run the communications depts. of communities of sisters throughout the US and Canada).
What a beautiful, stunning and amazing wonder it is. Haven't seen it in person? Time for a road trip!
|The Falls from the Canadian side. Rainbows are very common.|
|Horseshoe Falls--named because they have a horseshoe shape.|
|The famous Maid of the Mist boat ride in the Niagara River. It gets very near to the Falls and all the "flamingo" passengers get quite wet!|
