Today we will take a view of the Bridal Veil Falls which is one of the Falls that make up Niagara Falls. Whether you are talking about Niagara Falls or the river leading to the Falls, the water is hypnotizing. I am not sure if the videos really relay the power of the water – you can hear it roar from a distance! The excitement builds up in you as it gets louder because you are almost there! Plus part of the experience is getting wet! That also happens as you are walking along the river. At the Horseshoe Falls I got misted pretty good and then add the wind – leads to an interesting hair day! In viewing the Falls you are literally on the edge of a very secured platform that is reinforced for safety. In the video you can see how we are at the edge of the platform when I am filming downwards for a view of Falls. The below picture also provides an example.
Over the years the Falls have shifted position due to erosion. Be sure to check out my earlier posts: A trip to Niagara Falls New York – Maid of the Mist and The Mighty Niagara Falls! Take a Journey with Me! The second posting includes a video we took walking along the river and then the Falls!
We saw this rope and realized if somehow you got yourself into the river, this is your last chance to grab onto something before going over the Bridal Veil Falls. I would suggest not testing out that theory!
The people you see below in this picture are part of the Cave of the Winds tour where you take an elevator down to the base of the Falls. Then you get to walk around, with a guide, which must be a fabulous experience. Take a look at this picture as it is taken from the base looking up! You are 20-feet away from the Bridal Veil Falls! I hope next year to do this tour though typically the lines are very long and I don’t have a lot of patience to wait.
