windy out. Decide to take it easy in the afternoon then go see the falls around
supper time in the daylight and once it gets dark. Check the weather forecast.
Weather Warning in effect. We get ready to leave and hear the skies rumbling.
Only 10 minutes to the Falls. Park the truck. It's too windy so we don't bring
the umbrella. Looks like it might clear up...though we do feel a few raindrops.
See the American Falls and walk to the Horseshoe Falls. The clouds have come
back. Alexis predicts that it will rain as we are having supper then it will
clear up. We start walking to the "Top of the Falls" Restaurant when the clouds
burst open...raining Cats & Dogs, with hail. We make it to the restaurant
without getting very wet. Have supper...the clouds part....the sun shines
bright! Walk back towards the American Falls and the Falls Observation Tower as
the sun starts to set. Multi-coloured spot-lights shine on the falls as it gets
darker. There are fireworks at 10 and Alexis wants to stay and see them.
