Mist in the Air - Niagara Falls

The blog has been quiet lately, due to the fact we've been traveling. 
We visited Niagara Falls and it goes without saying, 
that you really must see it in person to appreciate it.

The falls are actually several falls.

The larger U-shaped falls are called Horseshoe Falls.

This is Niagara Falls, with the smaller Bridal Veil Falls to the right.
See the red decking near the Bridal Veil Falls?
That's where we went.

The attraction is called Cave of the Winds 
and takes you 175 feet down below the falls to see them up close.

The power, wind & pounding sound of the water is awesome.

Here's a view of the decking from above the falls.

The falls throw a mist into the air all around the area.

And creates a beautiful rainbow.
Truly a wonder to see.
