Tuleb lai kärestikuline jõgi, möödub kahelt poolt ühest saarest, mille nimi on Kitsesaar (Goat Island) ja kukub 51 meetri sügavusele alla.
Kaardil on need märgitud valge lainelise joonega.
Niagara Falls are actually split between Canada and the US. This is what the American side looks like. Imagine a wide field of water, cluttered with rapids. Right before the falls a large island or Goat Island as it is known splits the flow in two. Between the Goat Island and Canada are the largest of the three falls, the Horseshoe Falls. They fall mostly on the Canadian side. Between the Goat Island and the US are the smaller American and the Bridal Veil Falls. There is a small patch of land between the Goat Island and the American mainland called Luna Island.
Development across the water are hotels and casinos in Canada.
People clad in yellow ponchos waiting in line to be taken down to the Cave of the Winds where, if they want, they can climb out to the foot of the falls.
A look at them from high above. The National Park Service has built a wooden walkway to where they can be showered by the spray.
Observation tower and Rainbow Bridge across the river to Canada.
Down below you can see a ship called Maid of the Mist.
Amish people waiting for the boat trip.
A little Amish in his poncho.
The tour furnished blue tarps only. If you had to wear a religious head garment such as an Amish straw hat you had to provide your own protection for it.
One of our acquaintances wanted to know if there are Jews in New York City. We always like a good laugh. The proof is in the pudding :)
Colored spotlights from Canadian side.
In most winters the falls become shrouded in ice. Wish we could come back and see.

Interstate road system has a lot of well-kept rest areas where you could use a rest room, get a cup of hot coffee or a snack. Not to mention streching one's legs. One of the them had a concession stand with local hotel discount coupons. We sure used it...
