I’m not a fan of cold weather. When my friend Barb suggested we go to Niagara Falls before she moved from Buffalo, I had slight reservations. I wanted to see the Falls, but not in the frigid January Canadian air. “It’s so beautiful in winter with the snow and mist,” she said. “Alright, let’s go,” I said.
I’m happy we went, because the Falls in winter is quiet, not that I don’t like noise and people, but the roar of Horseshoe Falls intensifies.
With an azure sky, serene surrounding and one of my best friends in tow, I took one for the team and froze my fingers to capture Niagara Falls mid-January.
This was my first visit to Horseshoe Falls since I was 7 or 8 years old.
Horseshoe Falls is more impressive than the American Falls. In fact, the American Falls is wimpy by comparison. Although Horseshoe Falls reins supreme, the entire Niagara Falls system is a natural wonder that expresses a small fraction of the beauty of Mother Earth. No matter the time of year one visits, The Falls never disappoints. Grab that passport and go.
