Scenes from the drive up:
I got pretty bored when I wasn't driving, as you can see from above.
|The hotel's "falls view". They're there. Behind the trees and the mist.|
We got an "Adventure Pass" and did the Creation of the Falls experience (it shook, was loud and you got wet. They should've warned those with kids and/or me), Journey Behind the Falls where you walk through a tunnel they dug and also get wet, the White Water Walk, a path by the Class 6 rapids below the falls, and the Maid of the Mist boat ride.
|I know. We're so adorable.|
|Behind the falls.|
|B LOVED the Maid of the Mist. He hung his head over the side of the boat like a dog in a car while the rest of us huddled against the wind and water.|
And then we changed and had a lovely dinner and found a spot to watch them light up the falls at night:
And then home again, home again, jiggity jig:
|Tim Hortons' Vanilla Latte FTW!|
|I would've smiled if we lived in PA, but we don't, and we still had like 5 hours to go.|
