Back in 2008, it was cold but so lovely! There is something about waterfalls and how they hug land and 'jump' of the edge at an amazing speed. Calmer waters at the top of the rocks at the Niagara Falls are dark blue and grey. When they fall down, they turn pristine white and almost resemble lace. Fall colors on trees surrounded the water and made for wonderful ambiance.
And the noise! Not only was I seeing nature's beauty, I could also hear it. The water is strong - it is almost impossible to talk to a friend standing nearby - the waterfalls make their presence strong.
If you have a chance, I would recommend a trip to the waterfalls. Walk around and enjoy the beauty of the Niagara.
