In my last post, I forgot to include some photos and brief summary of our experience on the Maid of the Mist. Basically you put on a
garbage bag blue raincoat, crowd onto a boat and they take you as close as they can to the Falls without getting sued:
Here is a shot when we just entered the boat:
And now we’re as close as possible to the Falls and everyone is getting heavily sprayed:
Naturally I don’t have a lot of photos of the Falls close up, because it would wreck my camera, but it’s like being in a storm. It’s fun though and worth the ticket price. On our journey we went to several museums that talked about people who went over the Falls, either intentionally or not, and those that survived are REALLY, REALLY lucky! Not just because of the size of the drop, but because of how rough the water is and it’s pretty rocky in some areas.
Anyways, there you have it: Maid of the Mist!
