Is this winter cold enough for Hell and Niagara Falls to freeze over?
Hopefully I’ll never find out about that other place, but Niagara Falls will never completely freeze.
Water still flows underneath the ice bridge formed most winters by mist and freezing water.
This is what Niagara Falls and the cars looked like 52 years ago. We carried on a tradition, that started when Napoleon’s brother brought his American bride here on their honeymoon in 1804.
Yes, that’s my handsome young husband showing off his new wedding ring.
What do hand holding, kissy-face newlyweds take pictures of? Morbid death barrels and other containers that people stupid enough to try going over the falls crawled into.
The good news is, a few did survive.
A cable car built in 1916, took us over the Niagara whirlpool.
This Aero Car was upgraded the year we rode on it. I’m not sure if that was before or after we rode on this rickety looking contraption. Recent pictures show that the only changes to the Aero Car has been adding a metal roof.
To hear the roar of the waterfall, we went through a series of tunnels to an observation deck.
Luckily waterproof cameras were invented 52 years ago.
Now there is a barricade that keeps people farther back from the edge of the falls.
The international boundary was placed somewhere over the Horseshoe Falls.
Erosion has caused a dispute over the boundary line, so no need to carry your passport if your boat is going over the falls.
This Flora Clock has been changing it’s face every year since 1950.
Although I’m always wondering where the time went, my mirror shows the changes added to my own face since our honeymoon.
Oh, well- – our life has been a fun trip of memories, with more to come.
