Niagara Falls, New York

here are some more pictures from my vacation to canada and buffalo.

first, some pictures from the niagara river, taken while waterskiing with relatives.

niagara fall, ontario, and niagara falls, new york, creep out from behind the trees as we go around the river bend near navy island.



niagara falls, new york, as seen from chippawa, ontario.



niagara falls, ontario, on the left, and niagara falls, new york, on the right.



niagara fall, new york, as seen from navy island.



the city appears just behind the river bend.



and now some pictures from within the city.

the american falls from the canadian side of the river.



the american and canadian falls from the rainbow bridge.



the american and canadian falls from the rainbow bridge again, but with some of the canadian skyline in the picture as well.



the river, just below the falls.



part of the gorge, where a power station once sat. the cliffside collapsed in 1957 and took the building with it.



looking down at the riverside, where the old power station once sat.



an old walkway or roadway from the old power station. steel and other stuff can be seen in the picture, at the shoreline for the river.



looking at the side of the gorge.



the city of niagara falls, as seen from the robert moses parkway.



looking north, down the river into the gorge from the rainbow bridge. the old power station site is at the very right.





BONUS PICTURE: niagara falls, ontario

Remind me never to go waterskiing with you guys. You get a little too close to the falls for my comfort.

Out of towners may not realize that the falls has no safety features. You can boat right over the edge if so inclined.

These are great pics. They show some very rare angles of the Falls and its buildings. The weather looks increadible. Maybe your pictures will go a long way toward debunking the myth that buffalo is a year round frozen wasteland.

Canadians know that Buffalo is not a year-round frozen wasteland - only 'mericans with too much moonshine in their possum pot pie think that it is.

I think it might be the Sky Screamer at Marineland?

The nice thing about the falls (well, the gorge) is that no matter how much development may try to spoil the place, get down low enough and those trees make it look almost pristine. Like a near vertical riverwalk.

its hard to believe the entire american side used to be covered with factories and that the canadian side was covered with cheap hotels, bars and souvenir shops...

The Canadian side had beautiful parks - and still does. The hotels in Niagara-On-The-Lake (North America's most beautiful community) were never "cheap".

did you miss the 'was covered' part of my statement... ontario fought a pretty extended battle to establish the park they have their today... before that time the only thing that was 'protected' on the canadian side was a 6 foot strip of land along the gorge that was called a 'military reservation'....

niagara on the lake didn't even exist in the time i'm talking about...
