Last April, on the way from Seattle to Quebec to pick up my Alto, I stopped at Niagara Falls for a night, staying on the Canadian side and enjoying a hotel-room-view of the Horseshoe Falls. I found the whole “big loud water” thing amazing and decided that I’d be back someday.
Yesterday was that day. I hit the American Falls this time, up close and personal. Niagara Falls is still freaking amazing. Here’s my favorite shot of the American Falls from my visit.
And here is American Falls on the left and Horseshoe Falls back to the right. Last year, standing on the other side right next to those falls, I thought the American Falls were kind of puny. I was wrong. They are just as impressive!
Yes, that’s a boat down there, with people on it. Maid of the Mist. It was so windy that the last place I wanted to be was down there!
A close-up of the American Falls, because, really, I just can’t get enough of this water.
The wind made most of my little videos too noisy, but this one, of the rapids just above the falls, gives you a sense of the water’s power.
I know I said it last year, but I’ll say it again. If you are anywhere near Niagara Falls, you need to go there. It’s simply one of the most awesome displays of water on the planet.
