Niagara

by Liz June. 13, 2008 3608 views

Since I didn't have a better idea (and I did promise to be more cheerful today), I thought I'd post a few more of my photos of Niagara Falls. These were all taken last summer over 4th of July weekend.

BTW - Happy Friday the 13th!

View of the top of the American Falls.

View past the American Falls looking toward the Horseshoe Falls.

Water pouring over the American Falls. It surprises people when they realize the water flowing over the Falls is only a few feet deep. Half or more is diverted by a hydroelectric plant upstream.

And here's the river gorge below the Falls. Water in this channel is estimated to be 35 feet deep, and flowing at 22 miles per hour (35 KM).

View looking back up the river gorge. The Falls are out of sight around the bend.
