Where I stayed
Travelling upstate and away from the coast you could quite literally feels the degrees in temperature dropping before eventually dipping below zero!
Accompanying these 'arctic conditions' was also an increasingly thicker layer of snow on the fields that we passed en route. It may have been painfully cold but it was also like looking out of the window at a postcard of how you might imagine this area to look like.
Niagara Falls was pretty spectacular to see and we can now add this to our collection of mighty waterfalls alongside Victoria Falls..
At this time of year it's too cold for the Maid of the Midst to operate so any close encounters had to be scribbled off the list leaving just a sideline view as the result of the eight hour journey to get there. But this was enough to take it all in.
Apparently Canada has the better view but unfortunately we didn't have time to see this for ourselves but judging by all the Casino's and high rise hotels they have next to the river, it would seem obvious they do... America, surprisingly, hasn't spoiled their side with all the commercialism that our views were blessed with.
Instead, we rather tastefully wandered through a snow covered park as the waterfall was lit up at night.
In truth, Niagara wasn't a patch on Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe but on it's own was definitely worth the visit and the journey, albeit long, provided a welcome change from skyscraper after skyscraper.
