|{ Falling For Niagara }|

Last weekend Jon and I decided to take a drive up to see Niagra Falls!! Neither of us had ever been to Canada, so that was cool to visit another country, even if it was just Canada.  It might have been prettier but we decided to go in January, haha.  So we took the 5.5 hour or so drive up to Niagra Falls.  We had not been on a long drive like that in a while and it was a lot of fun! We listened to the newest Artemis Fowl book on CD and munched on snacks!

(They use km/h! Weird!)

It was really cold, being January :), but was so much fun!! The falls looked so awesome!! They were partially frozen and it was gorgeous!  For those who have been and I know that you will ask, we saw it from the Canada side, which we had been told was the better side.  We have no say though since we haven't seen the New York side.  Anyway!! We got as close as we could to the water, which was really close, and it was so scary looking!! With ice chunks in the water and then shooting off the edge of the falls, it was like you were looking at the edge of the earth! Crazy!!

A rainbow!

I love everything about this picture!

Since it's cold, the water that gets sprayed into the air from the falls lands on everything and it all froze!! Even the trees had lovely frozen lines all over them!! I imagine it was similar to the ice storms I've heard so much about but have yet to see here in Michigan! It was amazing!!!

This was one of my very favorite pictures of the day!

These pretty weeds collected balls of ice on them! They look like big pearls!

We had a super great time and can't wait to go back when it's warm! :)  (You can click on the pictures to make them bigger!)
