Niagara Falls

I have been doing a bit of travel lust thinking about Canada of late, and like this post, have been checking out some photos from very old trips of mine. These are the best photos I have of a visit to Niagara Falls, from October 2001.

This was during a trip to visit my mate who was living in New York, and we went to Niagara for a weekend to mark both of our birthdays.

We flew up to Buffalo from Newark, and I don't recall how we crossed over to the Canada size, but I vaguely remember stopping on a bridge to get stamps in our passports. We stayed on the Canada side, in the Vegas-like neon strip.

Taking in the falls from the land vantage point, we also got up close and personal with this wall of water.

First up we went on the Maid of the Mist, the ferry that takes you on the water at the foot of the falls. Provided with blue ponchos to protect yourself from the splash, some of the journey was just like a rainy day. But it was pretty amazing to be so close to that much cascading water.

The other way to get close to the water was Journey Behind The Falls. I actually had to look this up, to be reminded that it is a series of platforms and tunnels behind the falls, to view the flow from behind the wall of water. I do remember that we got yellow ponchos for this one!

These Horseshoe Falls at Niagara were pretty impressive, and one of those places in the world that you just have to go to if you ever get the chance!

This weekend trip is actually my only venture into Canada, making me able to colour the whole country on my Visited Countries posts, but really there is so much more to see!
