I’m sure some of the flowers will get damaged with the huge gusts of wind today, but this is what the Niagara Parkway/Queen Victoria Park area looked like yesterday. Nice!
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.
Note: There were 3,241 images in 254 galleries/categories in the Niagara Falls Image Gallery at the time they were posted.
Someone with a LiveJournal blog posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:
So I went to Niagara Falls this weekend, and came home with a fairly wicked sunburn.
This — for those of the readership not au fait with So. Ontario springs — is, to put it mildly, odd. The wind- and rainstorm that’s now blowing up in the sun’s wake is more typical… assuming this were mid-July, that is.
That said, I had a pretty good time at the Falls. Not that I’m unfamiliar with the wet’n’wild marvels themselves; Shoemom is native to the area, meaning they were routine scenery on weekly Sunday family drives, and later a mandatory timekiller for the grandkids’ visits.
The thing is, the surrounding area has… developed… a bit, since Shoemom was a little sneaker.
