Niagara Falls - Truly Amazing

This part of my story is tough to tell.
I am very happy it allows you to upload pictures but even they won't do it justice.
To think that someone put themselves into a wooden barrel and plumitted off the edge of this monstrosity is truly unbelievable to me.
We decided (due to funds) to skip the Maiden of the Mist.
This is the boat that takes you up to the edge of the falls to get hit in the face with 1000 pounds of mist and looks like a main tourist attration for families and the like that travel there as their main destination.
It feels like it's always raining there.
I couldn't imagine working there everyday and never staying dry.
It's gotta be like working in Seattle, or London for that matter.
It was a nice stop and I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't been. It is worth the ride.
PS: Parking can be outrageously pricey (unless you are taking a bus trip and they factor that in) so my friend and I drove all the way past the falls (on the Canadien side) and parked down toward the end of the road which was cheaper (or free if you don't see a guard at the turnstyle and you decide to randomly park a mile plus away from all other vehicles).
