Last week, Tommy had to go to Buffalo to pickup a broken leak detector and drop off one that works. This would be a five and a half hour long ride for about fifteen minutes of "work". He didn't really want to go alone. Couldn't blame him. It's a long and boring ride there and back. He thought I would keep him entertained, so, off I shuffled off to Buffalo with him. Well, my Tommy couldn't take me all the way to Buffalo without going a tad further to Niagara falls.
"Ah, it's on the way," he said dismissively. Well, he also has said that Yellowstone park is on the way to California too. Yeah, he's a traveling type of guy!
Did you notice the rainbow over the falls? I did! There were two actually! Oh, but it was lovely. Pictures just don't capture the grandeur, the beauty and the magnificence of Niagara falls. Doesn't capture the noise either. Boy, is it loud! You can hear it before you get to it but you can see the mist coming from it miles away. Super cool trip, but it's even better in summer. Of course, it'll be crowded too. We had it nearly all to ourselves, which was rather nice.
This Niagara river was rushing so fast and furious, it's actually frightening! Okay, so, I'm a chicken. Sue me! They must have had one too many near accidents--ala people falling off to be taken to their death over the falls--on this bridge. I say this because they have the sides built up so high and fortified with fencing and pole that you can barely see the river anymore. Forget about a good picture. Ah, well, at least it looks good from the shore.
