Colorful Arch Rises Above The Water From USA To Canada
If you thought rainbows only happened in Hawaii and fairytales, then you’ve never been to Niagara Falls.
Each sunny evening, something spectacular happens over the Falls, a rainbow that arches its multi-colored hues from, seemingly, the USA shore to the Canadian side.
It’s a tremendous site, which the makes Niagara Falls even more spectacular. And when you view the Falls for the first time, raging straight down in a rush of water in volumes your brain cannot even comprehend, it’s hard to believe anything could add to it.
But nature provides it and it’s the top must-thing to experience when visiting Niagara.
The sunsets are best viewed from the Canadian side (as is everything about the area, in fact). People come out to the pristine sidewalk to lean against the railing and take in this natural marvel.
It happens at the end of each day the sun is out, before darkness covers the Falls like a blanket. Some places have sunsets; in Niagara Falls they have rainbows.
It sure caught me by surprise. I, like many travelers here, had no idea. A friend and I had just returned from wine tasting in nearby Niagara-By-The-Lakes and checked the bottles we brought back when it happened, seemingly out of nowhere.
The cute girls we were talking to at the time, who were the horse-and-carriage drivers, told us the story, that it happens every sunny day.
We were impressed. Still are, in fact.
