Niagara Falls Daycation

[Please note that this blog post is backdated to October 10; the post was published on November 12.]

 

We went for a walk today…at Niagara Falls State Park.

We left home en route Niagara Falls around 8:00 am, arriving in Niagara Falls about 2 ½ hours later.   We parked at Prospect Point, where the Empire Passport provided unlimited day use vehicle entry into the park.  The Empire Passport saves us $10 each time we visit Niagara Falls State Park.

After parking and going to the bathroom at the Visitors Center, we walked to Terrapin Point.

We were disappointed to find Terrapin Point under construction.  Visitors will not be able to get up close and personal with Horseshoe Falls until Summer 2016.

From Terrapin Point we walked to the Goat Island overlook of the American Falls and then to the Luna Island overlook of the American Falls.

I loved watching the rainbow form in the video displayed above this photograph.

I can’t recall the last time we were on Luna Island. It had been a while.

 

From Luna Island we walked to Prospect Point for one last view of the American Falls.

What a nice walk we had!  I never tire of the sights and sounds available in Niagara Falls.
