Niagara Falls Weekend Getaway (Sunday)

Since Monday I have been sharing photographs and details of our Niagara Falls weekend getaway.

On Sunday, February 22, after eating a hot breakfast, we checked out of the hotel and made one last trek to Goat Island.

The sun was shining, when we began our walk to Goat Island.

By the time we had reached the island, though, the sun was being covered quickly an icy mist.

See that white circle in the sky?  That’s the sun!

I had hoped to capture a photograph of the American Falls with a blue sky as a backdrop.  Unfortunately, a heavy icy mist surrounded the falls.

We stayed at the overlook for a few minutes, hoping that a puff of wind would push the icy mist over to Canada. It didn’t happen.

Bob asked me to take his picture beside this tree.

When the snow is gone, Bob wants to stand by this tree again to show how high the snow was in the park.

image If accuweather.com is accurate in its weather forecast for Niagara Falls, that snow is going to stick around for a while (at least through the month of March)!

We returned to the hotel parking lot, hopped in our car and began our drive back home. We were on our way back home by 9:00 am.

    Linda, Your photos from Niagara Falls have been fantastic.. I am such a wimp I would have picked some warm place for a getaway..But, I must admit the snowy icy scenes are pretty. Have a great day!

    I’m sorry the sun didn’t cooperate so you could get a picture of the American Falls under a blue sky, but I think the blue mist is beautiful as it is. I would still like to see Niagara in the winter, but for now I’ll have to be content with your excellent photos.

    Still extraordinary photos even without the sun. I’ve never been to the American side of the Falls. The last time we visited it was closed for some reason. Will definitely go the next time, whenever that may be.
