During Memorial Day Weekend (A US holiday commemorating members of the United States Armed Forces who died at war), we had the distinct pleasure of going to visit some great friends. They happen to live about an hour away form Buffalo and Niagara Falls. My husband (shockingly) had never been to see these wonders of nature. Since we were all keen on seeing them, our friends did us a solid and took us to the US side of the falls. I had been to the Canadian side, and had been impressed by the sight of the falls because you get to see them from the front. While the American side does not allow for straight on views, it does offer wonderful perspectives on the falls. Here are some of the pictures I took.
