Niagara Falls – Ontario – Canada

Standard

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

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).

  1. 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.

  2. 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!)

    • 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.
