July 7 - Niagara (Hamilton to Toronto)

Niagara Falls was so very majestic and awe inspiring. It is hard to comprehend the magnitude of what your able to behold at such amazingly close proximity. The mist blocks much of the view, but I was most impressed with the way the water curves over the brink and then turns to foam.

It is a bit startling that the noise isn't deafening! We could chat in conversational tones right next to the falls.

The place has become a tourist trap, full of glitz and plastic. The crouds were enormous and as we departed found the approaching freeway to be a 40 mile long parking lot. We felt we got out of town just in time.

We're so glad we saw the magnifience of the falls, but couldn't leave the crowds behind soon enough!

You got the shot of my favorite element of the falls in your bottom picture and your comments about that. If you were to step into the deep green water there you'd really odsxq for a second.

I somehow missed this post earlier. It's too bad that the crowds are so bad. I guess seeing it once in my life will be good enough (even if I can barely remember).
