On July 14, 2012, I embarked on my 4th trip to Niagara falls within 3 months and it was an experience I will never forget. This time went with great friends whom I have known for years from my Armenian Community center. I never would have expected that I would go on Maid Of The Mist. I have always come to Niagara, but I have never went on it. So this time I put my foot down and did it. I am so glad I did. People often take photos and look at the falls from above, but once you go on that boat with your blue poncho, and start heading toward the American and Horseshoe falls, you automatically feel the sense of amazement and it is so beautiful. More beautiful than looking at it from above. I saw a rainbow on the American falls, and once we were getting toward the big one, the mist started to come onto all of us, and it was refreshing and at the same time the view, and the experience was unlike any other. I will never forget this experience for the rest of my life. I want to go on this again next time I go. It was an experience of a lifetime.
If you have not tried Maid of The Mist yet and if you have not yet visited Niagara Falls, you must do it. Everything is great in Niagara, but this one takes the cake out of everything else. God has created a beautiful earth and with amazing landmarks and everything else. God bless Niagara Falls… I was thinking to myself how Wallenda did it, with all that mist hitting up top and I was thinking to myself how the rope was put on and how everything took place. Wow, and the energy, the power of the water when it falls and all the white water going around like crazy, it was amazing. TOTALLY AMAZING. Do it!
We enjoy the picturesque prettiness of Niagara falls. Wonderful travelogue!
Thank you Talin, thanks to your highly detailed and moving description of this experience i felt like i was practically there with you, feeling the wind and splashing water on my face, and enjoying the wonderful day.
Fun! Isn’t it cool? (I still have my Maid of the Mist souvenir poncho!)
Praise God for His creation. Sounds like you enjoyed this trip more than any of the others. I would love to see the falls myself but it is 3000 miles from where I live. I was closer to them in 2009 when I went to Montreal (beautiful city) but didn’t have much time to go too far from base. Maybe next time eh?

Those falls are a geologic wonder. They once were much further downstream many thousands of years ago. That must be so beautiful to be at the base, getting drenched!
great to hear and see such a personal experience.
Awesome experience glad you enjoyed it 🙂
I envy your adventures, God bless you. – owp
