Niagara Falls Wed. & Thurs. June 13 &14, 2007

Arrived safely after a long 255 mile trip. This could be a record for this epic journey! No rain just clear skies. Got an email from Rich that said we left just in time. He had a bad storm, blew his raft away, no lights or phone etc. But boy oh boy was it hot and dry here, 92.

Got set with tours for tomorrow and found our bearings. we are in an RV park 6 miles from the falls.

Thursday morning we ventured out sans tour to the American Falls and the Niagara Falls State Park, the oldest state park in the US.

Here's the happy couple now, looks like they are on their honeymoon!

We decided the best way to see everything on the American side was to walk Goat Island.And that is what we did for several hours taking in the sights and sounds! The weather is perfect, things have cooled a bit to the upper 70's, dry and clear skies.

This is a photo of the falls looking across the Am Falls with the horseshoe falls in the background.

And one of our favorite photos, the falls with the Maid of the Mist boats and the ever popular rainbow.
