fyi, the mist from the falls alone is like
stepping into a shower.
the maid of the mist boats. this is the view from the
place in the hotel where we had breakfast.
this is the thingy we went on. it's called the
niagara skywheel, and the gondolas are closed,
climate-controlled, and air conditioned.
how's that for a luxurious view of the falls?

niagara falls lit up at night,
changing into the colors below.
