The day Chris took the girls to the waterpark, I went for a lovely brisk walk.
Icy from the mist.....right near the falls...
This is how close you can get! Its actually quite frightening! You can hear and feel the power of all this water...It made me think of Roger Woodward..the 7 year old boy that went over the falls. Listen to his story told by Stuart Mclean http://beemp3.com/download.php?file=5254913&song=roger+woodward+story It is amazing! I can't imagine going over the falls by accident and can't even begin to understand why folks would want to do it intentionally for fame.
This is an original structure from the first hotel at the falls...Clifton House. This is part of the formal garden. The Clifton is no longer there but this structure remains and in the summer, the gardens are beautiful. This is only half the structure..it curves around...I am standing at the middle point.
Check out the retro phone and buttons in the elevator. We had to take 2 elevators to get to our room...the first one was fine, but then a smaller, antique elevator to take us up to the top floor. Scary!
