Niagara Falls

Posting from the road again… a short untimely trip to Niagara Falls provided us a quick glimpse of the falls.  The last time I was here, it was the autumn of my 10th grade high school as I was looking at colleges.  Oddly enough, I was interested in pursuing photography at RIT, the college that Matt attended.  I ended up not going there for many reasons but do remember what a beautiful site Niagara Falls was.  It had always stayed in my mind that the Canadian side was more developed and nicer than the American side.  While on this trip our view of the falls was brief and even though we had our passports with us, we just didn’t have the time to hassle with the border crossing.

Luckily Matt proved to be an excellent tour guide.  We quickly found a parking place and walked into the American side park.  It was lovely, well landscaped and clean.  The views were stunning and the falls were awesome!  There just aren’t enough superlatives to accurately describe their power and physical beauty.

This is truly one of our best natural wonders.  I would recommend the destination for longer than just an hour.

As we make our way back to Virginia, Matt wanted to show me another beautiful site in his home state of New York.  We traveled along the finger lakes for more stunning scenery.  A series of long, deep and skinny lakes that comprise the finger lakes region host a great number of wineries and farm land as well as water sports.  We got in a bit of autumnal leaf peeping and once again become accidental tourists.

  1. That camera is too cool. I was able to stich the panoramas together on the camera as I was taking the pictures. Instant success! Thanks for stopping by….. by the way those were amazing underwater shots from your vacation. It looks like your family had a great time together. Thanks for sharing. -Kim
