Niagara Falls, NY
New York and Canada
These are pictures of Niagara Falls, taken from the Canadian side. We came here to take pictures of our friend's wedding.
When we passed over the Rainbow bridge, it was early in the morning, and we didn't have a hard time finding a place to park. In fact, we were wondering where all the people were at. But it didn't take long for them to start showing up by the busloads.
The top picture is the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, the bottom picture is the American Falls, and you can see the cruise, Maid of the Mist in the foreground.
Erosion of the Falls
Erosion over the years has caused the Horseshoe Falls to take the shape that it has. In 1678 it was straight across, and it has been losing about a foot a year in large rocks and boulders being torn from the cliff.
Before the 1950's, 3 feet was being eroded away every year, but they have made attempts to reroute some of the fast flowing water. The Horseshoe Falls are 170 feet high, and the American Falls are 110 feet.
