Niagara Falls: Winter Style

Niagara Falls never ceases to amaze and awe us. Driving back from Toronto to New Jersey late in February this year, we stopped to have a look at the Falls, not thinking that we'd find them quite different in the winter cold. And cold it was! Cold, cold, cold! But, oh! How incredibly beautiful everything was. The spray from the Falls themselves froze as it settled on the trees, rocks and railings, and made everything glitter, sparkle and shimmer.

The Falls themselves were their usual impressive selves--reminding everyone of how puny humans really are. About a week or so after our visit, a bloke threw himself over the Falls ... and survived! Inconceivably true.
