அமெரிக்காவே உலக மக்களின் கண்களில் பெரும் காட்சிப் பொருளாக மாறி மாபெரும் ஐஸ் கட்டி நாடாக மாறிக் கிடக்கிறது.
எங்கு பார்த்தாலும் பனிக் கட்டிகள், ஐஸ் கட்டிகள், கடும் குளிர், பனிக் காற்று.
The river below the falls was covered in thick ice. The flow was still there just underneath an impressive thick sheet of ice. The American and Bridal Vale falls had huge sections iced over. At the bottom of the fall huge icebergs had formed. These little beauts could sink the Titanic!
I then walked over to the famous house shoe falls. The spray from this is insane! I found myself walking through a ridiculously cold rain storm. As I walked directly through the spray, little did I know that as soon as the wind changed the path was completely dry. Needless to say it took seconds for a drenched Jaif to turn to ice.
The Niagara river runs from Lake Erie through to Lake Ontario with all of this impressive flow crashing over the famous falls. There is in fact so much flow that it boasts the highest flow rate of any falls in the world. In high flow six million cubic feet of water crash over the three falls a minuet, with four million on average. That insane flow is harnessed with hydro power, which is nice.
Presenting a picturesque view to the tourists.
Icicles hanging around the falls, along with their splashing water and frequent rainbows,
Have attracted more visitors than in previous winters.
