This weekend, I got to take a trip with a few friends from my congregation. Our first stop was Niagara Falls (the American side)! I was amazed by how gorgeous the views were!
To get a closer look at the falls, we took a ride on the Maid of the Mist. ($12.20 well spent!) The views were incredible! (Seriously, it's worth paying to ride the boat. You just don't get the same view from land. Plus, who wouldn't want to sport a stylish, blue poncho?)

|I'm not sure why our boat had a Canadian flag, since we were on the American side?|
|Our sweet, blue ponchos kept us "dry."|
After riding the Maid of the Mist, we took a few more photos from the overlook.
|View of the Canadian side. If you look closely, you can see a tiny speck just to the left |
of the building that looks like the Needle in Seattle. That's the tightrope man!
|And to make up for the Canadian flag from the boat, here I am with a fake Lady Liberty.|
Niagara Falls was STUNNING, but sorta smaller than I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong; it was still GORGEOUS, but I guess I imagined the falls would be bigger. I'm bummed I didn't have my passport on me, because I hear the Canadian side has an even more gorgeous view. Overall, I really enjoyed this part of the trip, and I'd definitely come see it again.
More trip details to come! :)
