On 27th september, we went on a very exciting sightseeing tour to Niagra Falls.
And.... As usual, we will start with a geography lesson. Jeng jeng jeng.
So basically there is 5 great lakes in the land of North America
All these water from these lakes eventually drain to the Anlantic Ocean. Water will flow from the highest sea level area lake which is Lake Superior to Lake Michigan and Huron to Lake Eerie and eventually to Lake Ontario, from Lake Ontario water will be going to the Pacific Ocean via St Lawrence River.
So as I mention earlier, Lake Ontario is in a lower level from Lake Eerie, these water from Lake Eerie drain into Lake Ontario via Niagra Escarpment and that my friend is such a large pool of water. Thats where we're going, to see that waterfall.( I love geography and astronomy , cause its just teach us of how small we are.)
So niagra falls consist of hoarseshoe fall, american fall and bridal veil fall.
On the way to Niagra Falls we stop at the winery, and visit a vineyard.
Nice weather eh.
And we were served a complimentary ....grape juice from the farm. Very nice.
Me in the bus to Niagra Falls. Happy habis. Saya suke nature sighseeing. :D.
Dah sampai. So down is the Niagra River, across that is the United States, and thats the rainbow bridge to cross from Canada to the States.
To enjoy the falls nearer we can take the boat which will bring us along the river and get nearer to the fall.
Us ready to board.
Thats our boat. Behind is the American fall.
Thats the American fall from the above. You can see the boat jetty in front of the fall.
More pics of us on the boat , behind us is the American fall, later we will get nearer to the fall as the boat behind, and the spalsh is just .......wow.
Just to share, thats how the American fall will look like from the American side, where they will see the water fall to a pit because they are from a higher ground. From the canadian site we will see a large water falling from a high level. ( would love to see the fall from American side). And see behind at the picture above, thats the American fall.
So after passing the American fall, the boat will go along the niagra river some more and make a turn at the hoarseshoe fall.
Me in front of the hoarseshoe fall.
Pics from my phone.
The great fall from above ( pics not from my phone) . Can you tell?.
The horseshoe fall from above, can you see my boat? Hehehehhe. Well that is as far as the boat can go, the water turbulence near to the fall is too massive.
More of our wet pics near the tall falling water.
Really it so humbling to see and experience such wonder of nature with my own eyes. I went back and study the fall with google earth and realize how small this area actually is with regards to our planet.
