On the three month completion date of our 2018 road trip, Ruth and I walked across the International Bridge from Niagara Falls, New York to Ontario, Canada. We then viewed the spectacular American/Canadian vistas of these famous waterfalls from adjacent cliffside walkways. My impressions of these moments are thus poetically expressed as follows.
“In cool sheen of spilled veil spot Niagara’s wet mist
Young couples close by ravished by lovestruck blissed
Gape wild rapids below stroll slowly onshore
Inhale green fields in springtime find urge to explore
As wide canyons converge in deep drop to free falls
A cascade of delights springs near colorful walls
Spectacular auras melt green, blue, and white
While rainbow formed orbs kiss such magical light
For more closeup encounters expect to get wet
Zip down to foamed surface as you’ll never forget
If these glacially formed wonders challenge your mind
Imagine rock sculpting in raw nature unkind
Stone bridge links two countries in this bountiful place
No border stress fanfare seek Canada’s space”
really delightful James, great shots and your poem says it all!
I am getting a little weary from the long roadtrip and hope that my blog quality does not similarly show wear.
Gorgeous pictures!!! Makes me want to pack up and go! Thank you!

Niagara Falls cannot be ignored if you love to travel.
I lived in the Niagara region for a stretch, so have enjoyed your posts. Niagara Falls is spectacular – sadly the commercialism of the town is nauseating, lol.
And sadly looking blighted as well.
