A Winter's Tale (Niagara Falls)

EXPLORE #83, Feb 6/09

 

View On Black

 

Niagara Falls in winter always looks so bitter cold..Believe me it's as cold as it looks..Here's a look at the American Falls including the Bridal Veil Falls seen on the extreme right hand side. Always fun to see Niagara Falls in wintertime..;) For those of you who regularly visit..There is a bird there if you LQQK lol ;)

 

"the Canadian Horseshoe Falls plunges 52 metres (170 feet) into the Maid of the Mist Pool.

at the American Falls the water's vertical descent ranges from 21 to 34 metres (70 to 110 feet) to the rock at the base of the Falls.

the Niagara Gorge extends from the Falls for 11 kilometres (7 miles) downstream to the foot of the escarpment at Queenston.

more than 168,000 cubic metres (6 million cubic feet) of water go over the crestline every minute during peak daytime tourist hours."
