Niagara Falls and two towers!

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

While I was in Canada on business I had time to do a little sight seeing, here is the highlights from the 12 hour trip!

Niagara Falls consisting of: American Falls on the left and Bridal Veil Falls the smaller waterfall (its “only” 56 feet/17 m wide) to the left of it and at the back you can see Horseshoe Falls

American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls to the right of it!

On the way to eat lunch in the Skylon Tower restaurant.

On the way back we decided to swing by the CN Tower in Toronto to have dinner.
