The area where you look out onto the Falls is like a fortress and is made of rock. I remember many years ago, probably in the 70s, when I went on this tour. At that time the raincoats were yellow.Maid of the Mist taken from behind the Falls. You can see these people are wearing the identical rain gear and heading right into the rainbow.
Brandon, taking in the sights and if I know him, doing a bit of deep thinking. He is camera shy at this age.
Jordan with the Falls in the background. He enjoys having his picture taken. I think both of these photos are nice. Behind Brandon is the American Falls and the Niagara River. Behind Jordan, the Horseshoe Falls, which are on the Canadian side.
The Horseshoe Falls from behind the Falls. The water sounds like thunder at this vantage point. 150,000 gallons per second go over the American Falls...600,000 gallons per second over the Horseshoe Falls. No wonder the Native Peoples of the area called it "Ongniaahra," meaning Thunder of Waters.
This is part of the Niagara Escarpment. On the right of the photo is the Niagara River. The water in the River always looks turquoise.
Another glimpse of the Falls from the tour.
And this one. The experience of going into the bowels of the Earth and viewing the Falls from behind is awesome...something that everyone should experience at least once in their life.
This one shows the rocks behind the Falls. You can even see the mist coming off the water. Michelle told me it was very misty that day. No matter what the day is like there is always mist coming off the Falls. The wind direction carries the mist to either the American or Canadian side. I've been at the Falls on days when the mist was so heavy you'd think it was raining.
I hope you enjoyed this glimpse of Niagara Falls from behind on the Canadian side. It's a place I never tire of.
