Rushing waters...

For a quick rush, click here:

"Water is powerful
It can wash away earth
Put out fire

And even destroy iron"
I recently heard that quote from a movie....(anyone?)
and it really stuck with me.
I took most of these on the U.S. side, overlooking the American Falls.  If you've never experienced Niagara Falls, it should be on your MUST DO List.  Standing here, you not only hear but feel the powerful surge of energy that is hard to describe!
The Horseshoe Falls (largest of the three)  reside on the Canadian side, spanning across a 2,500 ft. wide brink.  See it there in the distance.  And tucked in between the American Falls and the Horseshoe, is the smallest, the Bridal Veil Falls.
It was a c-c-old and windy morning, but it was spectacular!
Sunny and bright one minute, dark and foreboding the next.
Of course after a 10-minute deluge (mad dash to the car!), what else would appear...
Hope you'll get a chance to visit the Falls up close and personal...it will be worth the trip!
Keep an eye out for a pink left hand glove...it literally flew out of my pocket(!) and, don't forget your passport.

  3. So lovely! I've traveled a bit in my years, but I've never seen Niagara. Must remedy that!
