Niagara Falls

On our way north we stopped at Niagara falls for a night. Dad wanted to stay in a hotel with a view of the falls just once. We weren't about to complain.

Mission Accomplished.  

And we loved it.

This is our incredible view from our room, you can even hear the falls with the window closed

American Falls which are no where near as interesting as the Canadian Horseshoe Falls

American falls again, the rocks ruins any chance of going over the falls in a barrel safely. Not that I wanted to though. 

The maid of the mist enshrouded in mist

The water is such a lovely green color at the top of the falls

Playing with long shutter speeds

As you might imagine Carter was just thrilled with this picture. : )

These girls on the other hand are also hard to take good pictures of, but obviously for different reasons. They pose too much

I'm the only child in our family who actually poses nicely for pictures. Consequently, our computer is not filled with goofy pictures of me, nor unsmiling ones. 

Just spectacular!

Despite being allowed to walk right up the edge of the falls, you'll notice I don't have any pictures closer than this. The reason for this is the mist. The mist is so heavy at the falls that it seems like it is pouring rain and I didn't want to get the camera wet. 
I went up, admired for .975 seconds, and after being throughly soaked I moved on. 

The falls are lighted up at night but the mist doesn't allow for great viewing. 

Niagara Falls,
