in Canada 1998.9.29 - 1998.10.12
Just a few kilometers
to go to Niagara.
First we parked the car at the B&B and walked towards the sights. Of the course the first thing we saw were the American Falls from the Canadian side of the gorge. We then left Canada and entered USA via the bridge over the canyon. Here we had a close look at the American Falls, with a nice rainbow in the mist and then from above - at the observation tower. Also we saw a little piece of the Horseshoe Falls very close, but you can't imagine their form and power from the US side.
After an ice cream we re-entered Canada.
One whole day to explore Niagara Falls. First we went to the Table Rock House. From there you can have a close look at the Horseshoe Falls. We entered the "Journey behind the Falls" afterwards. You discover two "sights" from behind the falls - where you see nothing but huge amounts of water.. - and a platform beside at the feet of the falls, where you can sense their immensity and power.
Next we headed toward the Skylon Tower and caught a sight of the falls from high above. From here you have the best opportunity to see the horseshoe form of the falls.
Then it was time
for the IMAX-Cinema with a movie about the falls and a display of
Niagara Daredevils - risk-loving people who tried to show that they can
master the falls. You'll find some of the barrels which people used to
"swim" over the falls. Kayaks and boats from Daredevils who drove through
the rapids and much more. After the movie about some history of the falls
we visited the Table Rock House again to see the rainbow.
In the late evening,
after dinner, we had a look at the light show, because every evening -
when it is dark - the falls are illuminated with many colors.
Nevertheless, we reached the airport very early and still had some time to wait there.
Return to Frankfurt
We arrived in Frankfurt in the early morning.
