Marielle Ravosa-- Interesting Niagara Fall Facts/Pictures

After learning about Niagara Falls in class today, I decided to do more research on the topic. I found out some interesting things that I thought would be beneficial to share!

Today, someone mentioned in class that at night spotlights illuminated Niagara Falls. Here, intense spotlights bathe the falls with different shades of color.

Also, during the winter, the falling water and mist creates ice formations along the banks of the falls and river. Chunks of ice as thick as fifty feet form. If the winter is especially cold, the ice will completely stretch across it and form an ice bridge. Until 1912,visitors were allowed to actually walk out on the ice bridge and view the Falls from below.
