For those of you not from around here, this may seem like a huge deal. After all, it is one of the 7 wonders of the world. But Niagara Falls is only a little more than an hour away from us, making it a perfect day trip. The Falls is best viewed from the Canadian side, so across the border we went.
There were quite a few options for the tourist thing but Willa chose The Journey Behind the Falls. This is a path that leads you behind the Horseshoe Falls, on the Canadian Side. Here, you see us in a tunnel of sorts, the white behind us is the Falls, crashing down. It also lets you observe the Falls closer to ground level. The Falls is immense and we could feel the power in the air as we walked around.
At night, they shine immense lights onto the Falls and this was one of the things on Willa's list to see. The Falls consist of two waterfalls, fed by the same river, interrupted by an island. Above you see the American Falls, and below is the larger, Horseshoe Falls. This is when they remembered they could take pictures with their DS. They have about a hundred pictures like these:)
They were asleep within minutes of crossing the border back into the US. Wayne and I just wished we could do the same. Kids love hotels but they don't actually sleep long or well while there. We haven't been this tired in a long time. Well worth it though.
