The last day in Waterloo, we woke to lovely sunshine, enjoyed one last delicious breakfast and visit with our Hillcrest House Hosts, and then set out about 8:45 am for Niagara Falls. We arrived there about 11 am.
We parked in the lot you can see on the left, donned all our winter clothes and walked toward the bridge across the road to the visitors center. So much commercialism, way over the top.....everything is nicely cared for, though and the plantings were beautiful everywhere.
This was the right hand view. As we walked the air was filled with very heavy mist from the falls.
Looking directly up to the left was a wall of motels. There is a tram leading up from behind the visitors center. It is like Vegas now that casinos are present.The American Falls
From the Canadian observation area, we stood right next to the point where the falls drop off the edge. The roar was so loud and the power awesome.

Well, that is about it.....we left the Falls and after clearing Buffalo, we drove on secondary roads back to Seneca Falls and stayed the night before heading home the next day. As always, it is so nice to be home, but we continue to dream of being back on the road again.
Thanks, everyone, for coming along, and all your nice comments!
