Niagara Falls



After we left Toronto we went to Niagara Falls, which was the main reason I wanted to make this trip before we left for the west coast. You can stand right next to the edge of Horseshoe Falls and it is pretty amazing to see that much powerful water gushing over the cliff.


We realized the reason you don't see a lot of pictures of Horseshoe Falls is that there is always so much mist in the middle.


So while American Falls (below) is beautiful and the most photogenic, it pales in comparison to the power of Horseshoe Falls.
 
The moon, just because I liked the picture.
At night they light up the falls all different colors. They start out with white lights, then circle through a lot of other colors, and then do multiple colors at once. Robert went down to the falls and took pictures, while I stayed in our falls view hotel room with the sleeping kids and watched from there. Of course I liked the purple lights the best.

And here is the sunrise over the falls as seen from our hotel room..
