Part two of Niagara Falls Adventures! These photos are from the cross country road trip I took in August of 2011.

The photo above is from the same position on the Observation Deck as the last instagram photo in part one. The noise from the water was tremendous!

Niagara Falls
Everyone knows Maid of the Mist IV, St. Catharines is the best one. The floatation devices are the most buoyant, the passengers are the cleverest, etc.

Niagara Falls
Maid of the Mist V - our natural enemy! Or doppleganger. Maybe it was us on the other side of a hole in time and space, a la Yellow Submarine. In any case, proof that it is possible to go close to the falls and survive. As we were headed into them, I was less and less sure so the site of this boat was reassuring.

Yellow jackets! A rival group of waterfall cultists.

Niagara Falls
It was SOOOO LOUD here - and wet. My camera was getting soaked along with the rest of me.

Niagara Falls
Ta-da! I mean, what can you say? It's amazing and there's no way I would go over the edge ON PURPOSE. Daredevils of the past, I don't get it. Your ways and motivations remain mysterious to me.

Niagara Falls
Long-distance view of the Yellow Jackets. They're everywhere!

Niagara Falls
My favorite thing about this picture is that right near the top is THE WATER and that it's hard to tell the waterfall mist from the clouds.

Niagara Falls
I love the contrast of the dark rocks and the white mist.

  1. I loved the Maid boat adventure so much! It seemed like it was over before it began, and I think I will have to go again the next time we visit Buffalo. I mean really, there isn't much else to do there.

    1. I wonder if you can buy an all day pass like at Disney World? Because that would be rad. (as long as you are on the superior Maid of the Mist IV!!!)
