The GOOBER Pic



Yup, here it is..the GOOBER pic, we all have them, and on every vacation or photo fest, there is always THE GOOBER PIC.. This is ours. We both hate this pic lol, but it's also THE ONLY pic of us together on our Honeymoon!...We took pics and lots of video but never got anyone to take a pic of us. This was the pic they took when u go for the Behind the Falls tour. Then if u like it you pay for it at the end of your visit...yeah they get ya anyway they can lol...So this is labeled the Quentisential Tourist Photo...
falls tour
This is where we went after that first pic was taken. Yes we had those cute yellow bags on ....Chris even made reference to maybe wearing them while naked later in the Hotel room...TMI...I know lol..what a nutbar...and IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!..

Getting back to the view...it was really something to behold standing inside the core and just outside the falls...the sound is something else to be impressed with. It really is a wonder I will never forget.

Till next post..

That was a wonderful description! I want to know about the sound...I can only imagine how loud it is? How can you describe it...like the sound of a train or echoing? More details....PLEASE!!!!

The power of the water crashing over the falls is just something else. It's hard to get your head around the idea that it never ends, never runs dry...just 24/7 pounding, crashing water, day in day out since time began. Last time we were there we found a placque that measured the amount of errosion...and how far back the falls had eroded over the last century, it was mind blowing.

P.S. lol @ your goober pic comments. We all have them hidden away somewhere!

I'm so glad you had a wonderful honeymoon. Your room was beautiful as was the view.

jersey..It's hard to discribe..the sound is like a roar or rumble..it's quite loud when u are close and u get the impression that the sound as much as the falls makes the earth move under your feet.... but even from our hotel room 26 floors up, with the windows closed, it was still ever present, like a low rumble..it didn't bother us, we got used to it..it just IS..It certainly is something to experience...as kitch or corney as some may think it is ...especially as a Honeymoon destination...When u get there and behold the beauty of the this natural wonder...u realize why it has drawn ppl from all over the world.

Glad you got a photo together. :)

They changed the bags? When we went they were blue, see: http://www.pagehalffull.com/humanyms5.html

Pearl, I checked your Niagara reference mentioned lol...were u on the Maid of the MIst (boat)?..if so, that's why u were in blue...they are all blue on the boats, and all the ppl going *under or *behind the falls are in yellow. Unless they changed that over the yrs ..was cool to see the blue blur on the boats from way up in our hotel room.
