When Betsy and I visited my daughter Kelly and her husband in Buffalo last month, this is as close to Niagara Falls as we got. The spray in the picture above is from the Canadian (Horseshoe) Falls. The picture itself was taken upriver from the falls on a footbridge on Three Sisters Island.
There were all kinds of activities going on around the main entrance to Niagara Falls State Park, so we did not attempt to get to the American falls. Instead we drove onto Goat Island in the Niagara Rivers and walked to Three Sisters Islands. Three Sisters is land donated to the state by a man who had three daughters.
We had not been to Three Sisters before this trip, and thoroughly enjoyed our walk to the islands and the up-close views we got of the river as it rushed toward the Canadian Falls. I’m sure there will be more pictures in the days ahead.
This picture, taken from Google Earth, shows the location of Three Sisters relative to both the American and the Canadian Falls.
