The Niagara Falls Pictures!!!

Queen Victoria Park

A view from Queen Victoria Park in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The American Falls are on the left, the Horseshoe (Canadian) Falls are on the right.

City of Niagara Falls

This is a view of the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario, taken from the observation deck of the Skylon Tower. Casino Niagara is the pointed structure at the far right in this picture. Above, is a good example of cirrus clouds.

The Skylon Tower

This is the Skylon Tower, the tallest building in Niagara Falls. We traveled to the observation deck to get pictures of the surrounding area. Interestingly, the Skylon was the first such structure to use slipform (moveable form) concrete construction.

Kathryn, Paul, Sophia & CuiHong

These are four of the five people who went on our trip! From left to right, they are Kathryn Stilwell, Paul Bynum, Sophia Shi, and Cui Hong Chen. (Seth Triggs, the fifth person, took the picture.)

The Canadian (Horseshoe)Falls

Here is an aerial view of the Horseshoe Falls, taken from the observation deck of the Skylon Tower. Note the absence of rocks, unlike the American Falls.

Clifton Hill lookingEast

This is the "tourist trap" area of Niagara Falls, know as Clifton Hill. It is a rather short street, filled to the brim with all sorts of wax museums, restaurants, and hotels. Casino Niagara is near here. The tall pole-like structure is a special ride in which you can ride up to a point great for pictures.
