#Niagara Falls – Almost Frozen?

Here’s some photos to prove the falls still flow despite the Winter Vortex of 2014.

Odyssey to Myself

We drove back from Toronto yesterday and decided to stop at Niagara Falls since we were so close. I didn’t know until this morning when I read in USA Today that someone started a rumor that the falls had frozen over. That explains the crowds of people out viewing the falls on an 18-degree afternoon. Obviously the falls didn’t freeze, and with its power, probably never will.

Niagara Falls refers to three falls on the Niagara River, which drains Lake Erie into Lake Ontario. Canada lies on one side and the United States on the other. The three falls, Horseshoe, American, and Bridal Veil, represent the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world.

  1. I love Niagara Falls. Probably more from afar at this time of year, but still, it’s one of the most breathtaking places I’ve ever visited. Can you imagine what it would look like frozen? Wow. Glad you got some beautiful shots, even if you were probably freezing and crowded when you got them. Memories you’ll never forget.

    • We couldn’t park so my husband sat in the car while I grabbed some quick shots. A police car sat a few yards behind us handing out tickets, so I did the best I could! I was surprised it was as frozen as it was knowing the power these giants create.
