Yesterday's blog was too long to take us all the way to Niagara Falls.

It was an overcast, cool day and most of these pictures were taken as we drove past the falls and along the Niagara Parkway.

That plume of white cloud you see in the middle of the picture above is the mist coming off Niagara Falls as we saw it from the Niagara Parkway.

Everyone likes to get close to the falls. This couple is just a few feet upstream from the falls watching the water disappear over the lip.

This old barge has been stuck just above the falls since the 1920s. That must have been some rescue mission to get the sailors off, not knowing if it might come loose and disappear over the falls.

This is the American Falls as seen from the Canadian side as we drove by. We didn't have time to walk around and the weather was cold and wet.

Heading home along the Niagara Parkway near Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Our final look at the Niagara River as it flows out into Lake Ontario.

Today we will spend some time in Gettysburg then head east to the Outer Banks, NC.

Pictures at the top were from our drive through the Allegheny Mountains yesterday.
