Niagara, here we come!

Onward to Niagara Falls . . .

Two days and nights were spent at Niagara County Campground and Niagara Falls area. Nice inexpensive Passport America campground about 22 miles from the falls. It beats paying a fortune for one of the other parks closer in. We were out in the country with the cows and fields of corn and beans.

Cave of the Winds on the American Side - Too close for comfort
Powerful Niagara . . .

Niagara was a welcome treat as we climbed the stairs to the Cave of the Winds and rode the Maid of the Mist up close to the Horseshoe falls. Cave of the Winds was too close for comfort and provided a total drenching. Had it not been for my cheap camera, I wouldn't have taken pictures here. And on The Maid of the Mist we were so close that we couldn't hold our eyes open and I didn't attempt to take any upclose photos here. It literally felt like a curtain of water enveloping us. So glad we saved our free sandles from walking the Cave of the Winds earlier. We would have been drenched top to bottom if it weren't for the raincoats and shoes they provide for you.

Oh, I found a souvenir. I've been wanting something hot pink, so I found a hooded coat from the Maid of the Mist - hot pink!
