The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

First off before we get to the Falls, a couple of shots from the previous set that I missed posting up.

The new sign to Shae’s Theater in the upgraded theater area of Main Street.

And this is a pretty cool looking hostel.

Now on to the Falls.

Canada is pretty smug about having the Horseshoe on our side and yes you can pretty much get to withing ten feet of the edge of things at that one corner of the walkway but once you walk up from the falls, it all turns into a wide meandering river. that’s all pretty flat.  And while there’s a few memorials here and there, they’re pretty spread out.  While the US side of the Falls is a little less spectacular, they have a series of rapids moving down to their side of things that are very impressive (which you cannot see from the Canadian side of things) and in true US Park Service fashion, there are lots of trails and it’s all very interesting.  Interesting enough that we spent a good four hours walking up and back in the park.

The Niagara rapids… lots of water all moving very fast. It looks dangerous and it is. Darleen got a little pissed at me when I ventured out on some rocks to get a better shot upstream of things. Of course you forget how shooting moving water messes with your sense of equilibrium when staring at it through a camera lens.

As you can see the weather was pretty active.

One from the rock…

Above the first bridge to Goat Island. It’s currently closed for renovations as is Lulu point, so no shots from there I’m afraid.

I’ll bet these will be impressive once they’re finally swept over the Falls.

The Falls and The Maids of the Mist. Something we’ll one day pony up the cash for.

The good Maids themselves.

 

Pushing in a little.

The curve of the Horseshoe from a different angle than I usually take.

And of course Nicola Tesla who without which we would not have AC power.
