    The Falls in the Fall

    No Comments

    My Mom and Dad were in Niagara this week and out of sheer jealousy I was inspired to write about my favorite time of year in my favorite place.  Er…favourite.

    The crowds are down and so is the temperature. The sky seems bluer and the trees make everything that much prettier. Walking through Victoria Park just doesn’t get much better for me. Head to areas around the Falls and you’re met by migrating birds at Dufferin islands. The drive out to Niagara-on-the-Lake is stunning with grape-heavy vines and fabulous color.  Er… colour.

    I won’t be able to make it this October, though I usually can. I did send someone from Texas to Niagara this weekend. You’re welcome American side. He didn’t have his Passport… Sorry Canadian side. But I have to admit…. One of my favorite American spots is Three Sisters Islands.  You’ve gotta love that last rocky island!

    Yes – I have taken all of the pictures shown above on various trips.  Except the horseshoe – that is a screenshot from a couple of days ago.  Those colours were popping even on a cloudy day!  Anyway – here’s to falling for the Falls in the Fall!   Where is your favorite – or favourite – leaf-peeping spot?

    Nice photos of Niagara Falls in Autumn 2010

    Yesterday I walked along the Niagara Parkway next to the Falls and in Queen Victoria Park. I took a bunch of pictures. It was overcast, so the sky doesn’t look great, but the colours of the leaves look good. I should have probably taken these a couple of weeks ago to get some more leaves on the trees, but I just didn’t think about it. Unfortunately, in the last couple of weeks we’ve had a lot of wind, so most of the leaves are off the trees now.

    You can see some of the thumbnails below, and the full versions in the Niagara Falls in Autumn 2010 gallery.

    Clifton Hill, The street of fun at the Falls

    Someone with a Blogger blog has posted about Clifton Hill (including pictures):

    Clifon Hill, the street of fun at the Falls, is indeed a street full of crazy bars, extreme shops, and amusement. It’s a bit like Las Vegas entertainment but in a smaller version. You can find a carnival fair, have a drink in a strange bar like the “Rainforest Cafe”, go bowling…. It’s a very busy street, many people go here to have fun but also to wander around in this crazy street full of music, sounds and colours. At night the lights come to live.
