Overland from Argentina to Canada - we have finally made it! --- the mist bellowing up from the explosive Niagra Falls...  Strange sort of elated feeling that a challenge we kept extending has finally been reached after almost a year.   So many amazing memories from a spectrum of countries and people we met along the way.  I think our educating journey of exploration travel has truly only just begun - the days tend to tick faster and faster every year but whilst on a trip like this time slows down - a new uncapturable visual experience, sound and scent every day...

We cruise around Niagra Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and Horshoe Falls taking in the spectacle - crazy to think that such massive bodies of water join up and then  funnel together through a gap 1060 ft in size and then drop 176 ft to create the spectacular American and Bridal Veil Falls.   +- 600 000 Litres of water fall per Second. 
Then you get the Horseshoe Falls:
length of brink: 2600 feet
height: 167 feet
volume of water: 2 728 000 Litres of water per SECOND
Great warm day but still ice in the water so boat trips arent available.

We meet up with Craig and head for dinner and a few pubs - really like the Buffalo, lots of micro breweries and the pubs have lists of beers on tap (in some cases over a 100) and of course Bufallo Wings (yip they coined it).

Head back to the pad for an early night. 

2 days time we are flying to Los Angeles, California for a 2 week West Coast road trip - road trippin plan is: LA - San Diego - Grand Canyon - Vegas...
