Watery Wednesday # 53: The American Falls

The American Falls at Niagara.  August 30, 2002.

The American Falls at Niagara. August 30, 2002.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

We got some much-needed rain here on the Plateau yesterday and I had a chance to work on some old pictures.  In the process I came across some forgotten pictures from a trip that Betsy and I took in 2002 to Niagara Falls.  I even came across a folder with pictures that I don’t even remember seeing before.  The picture above is one of the pictures from that folder.

We stayed in Canada while we were at the falls, but we did spend one day on the American side.  While there we went down to the base of the American Falls and then walked to an observation deck on the side of the falls.  That’s where the picture above was taken.  The sight and sound of all that water tumbling over the falls is absolutely tremendous.

    It’s been over 20 years since we were there, I wouldn’t mind going back.

    Ditto – what Jen said! Even the 20 years part. We loved it there and I wouldn’t mind going back. But everything is so far nowadays and costs so much money!!!
    Thanks for sharing the beautiful photo!

    I’ve never been to the American falls side. We always seem to end up on the Canadian side. Really must go there sometime….it looks beautiful here, even if not as spectacular as the Canadian side.
