We began our Two Week Trek by Train across Canada in Niagara Falls
It was May; however, the Falls were still partially frozen…….Check Out Those Large Ice Chunks
This was the View from our Hotel Room. The Sheraton on the Falls…….Just Amazing
Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that straddle the international border between Canada and the United States
Here is a Photo of the Falls Completely Frozen over in 2014
…….and one from 1911…
From largest to smallest, the three waterfalls are the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls.
The Horseshoe Falls lie mostly on the Canadian side and the American Falls entirely on the American side, separated by Goat Island.
The smaller Bridal Veil Falls are also located on the American side, separated from the other waterfalls by Luna Island.
The Views were Spectacular…
The Rainbow Bridge at Niagara Falls is an international steel arch bridge across the Niagara River gorge, and is a world-famous tourist site. It connects the cities of Niagara Falls, New York, United States (to the east), and Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada (west).
In the Mornings the Falls and River are Shrouded in Mist and Fog…….Enchanting….
Strolling about the Park we found the Dogwoods beginning to Bloom…our Hotel is the building behind the Tree
Of course, all that exercise worked up an appetite….Lobster Roll and Caesar Salad
Back to the Falls for one more look………perhaps to sing a song……
A Little Wine Tasting before Bed………
Well off to bed…..this vacation is just starting…….
Thanks for coming to visit Niagara Falls with us…..hope you enjoyed!
One can only stand and look in awe at the savage and powerful beauty of the falls. They certainly rendered me speechless, and as you know that is not easy Tinny. I can’t believe anyone would have the courage to go over those falls in a barrel – no matter what it was designed. What a glorious way to begin a holiday.
Oh, Virginia, you made me giggle, thinking of you being speechless! I would never, ever consider going over those falls……much better to sit and have a croissant with you the Good Husband!
Thank you for inviting us to come along on your journey. It seems too cold for me! I am reminded of the 1953 movie, “Niagara,” with Marilyn Monroe and Joseph Cotton. (Follow that Yellow Brick Road!)
Oh Jo Nell, this wasn’t cold…later in the trip we traveled out onto a glacier……now that was cold!
I can’t wait to hear how you like this adventure as taking the train across Canada is on our to do list.
We so very enjoyed this adventure! It was our first fully escorted trip and we were nervous about that aspect; however, we had a grand time.
I have only visited the falls once and the weather wasn’t great but it certainly was impressive.
I agree, Karen, the Falls are quite impressive. I enjoyed seeing them. Do not believe that I would return and kept pondering the fact that this is a honeymoon destination…….really??!!? Glad we got to see them, there it is checked off the list.
I remember the thundering noise of the water… It’s amazing to see the falls frozen. Great pictures – it looks like you had lots of adventures in Canada!
Yes, just moments ago we were wishing to be back on the train!
