Pass the soap.


It was hot and humid in Branson, MO.  We still had a couple of vacation days left, so on a whim, we pointed the motorhome North and ended up here:


We were amazed at the power and beauty of Niagara Falls.


Being the thrill seekers we are, we had to get close to the falls.


Still wasn't close enough, so we took the trip down to the bottom of the American Falls where you can walk on a wooden deck right up to the cascading water.


You are provided with a raincoat and a pair of rubber slippers for a small fee before you head up the steps to the falls.


You still get a little wet.  But there was more bathing to come.  We couldn't let all that nice water go to waste.


So we boarded one of the Maid of the Mist boats that run right up to the bottom of Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side of the falls.  They actually run right into the rising mists at the bottom of the falls.


My favorite red head.  Get the blow dryer ready!
