Awesome pictures. I must have been the only guy to visit NY without a camera. Felt so stupid. Climbed the empire state but no pics of that

Do you mean the underground tunnells available behind the Canadain Side of the the fall? One can reach these tunnells using elevators, see the falls from behind and also feel the sound of the fall as it is at the base.

Well, the US side of Niagra Falls could very well be renamed Mahatma Gandhi Park. But for the beautiful landscape and natural beauty, one can assume being at a park in India.
Absolutely - how could Americans(Masters at marketing) go wrong in surrendering better territory to Canada?Did not visit the other places as I had to rush back and catch a flight to Dallas teh following day.
