Waldo, Detroit, and Niagara: Part 3 of 3.
We drove across southern Ontario from Sarnia, through London, Woodstock, and Paris, to Niagara Falls on the Queen Elizabeth Expressway (QEW). I’d like to think that I had some idea, but really, I had NO idea how big Niagara Falls was. And what was immediately impressive was the size of the mist cloud created by the falls. In this photo you can see the mist peaking over the top of the falls. Typically, the cloud was much higher than this, sometimes twice as tall as the falls, and wherever you stand in the park you get sprinkled. (This creates a catch-22 where you are in an amazing natural setting, yet you can’t take photos because the air is saturated with water-mist. I, and many other tourists, braved the mist and took photos anyway.) By the way, if you get a chance to visit Niagara Falls, visit the Canadian side. It is clearly the side to be on.
