Niagara Falls

With only a few weeks left in Michigan, we finally made it to Niagara Falls. We drove out on Wednesday night (April 21) as soon as Christie finished her finals and had to be back by Thursday night because Bruce had a final on Friday. We thought the trip was the perfect length - the falls are amazing, but they really don't change so we didn't see a point to staying longer than an hour.

Here is a picture as we drove by the first time.

We quickly parked and found out how to get closer.

Since pictures don't do justice to Niagara Falls, we captured some video. The first video helps put the size in perspective.

Here is a panoramic view:

...and here is my (Bruce's) favorite video showing both the speed the water is travelling and how close you can actually get to the falls.

After mom (grandma) told me she always wanted to go to Niagara Falls on her honeymoon - and did - I wanted to go there too. Your dad & I went and loved it. We have some awesome pictures as well. I am sure you have as many great memories there as we do.
