Niagara Falls

6,000 thousand years ago the Great Ice covered the earth … The earth was quietly sleeping under the thickness of the glaciers, implicitly preparing for the Great Awakening. The sun tried, warming the white silence. The glacier began tossing and turning, moving and moving, raking everything that stood in its way. Stones moved, rocks broke and collapsed, riverbeds deepened, new lakes appeared …

The melted Great Ice gave the world Great Lakes. And the water from these lakes cheerfully ran to Niagara, eroding everything in its path and jumping from the rocks with a deafening roar and spray. So many, many years ago, the Earth found an incredible miracle – Niagara Falls.

Centuries have passed. On the banks of the wayward river came the Iroquois tribe Ongiar, which means “Forked land.” The tribe was extremely peaceful, skillfully negotiated with the most warlike neighbors and always helped negotiate warring parties. In general, this tribe was good …

There was only one girl in the ongiara tribe – Lelelevae, smart and beautiful. The father decided to pass her off as an Indian warrior, not the most enviable groom, from the point of view of the bride herself, but a very good husband for the wayward daughter, from the point of view of her father. And everything would be nice and wonderful – a wedding, kids, if love had not intervened. For the obstinate Lelevalai loved another, the god of Thunder He-No, who lived in a cave under the Horseshoe Falls.

And then Lelevalae grabbed her nimble canoe, and ran to the river … One moment – and her canoe flies in a turbulent stream of turquoise waters, and then spun the whole waterfall, sprinkled a defenseless sliver – and as if there wasn’t a beautiful Lelevala in the world …

No need to cry! He-No caught his love on the fly, their souls and their hearts joined, and they began to live in the sanctuary of God of Thunder under a waterfall …

Did they have children, how many and how their fate happened – I don’t know this, and therefore I can’t tell you …

These kind of thoughts and images circled in my head as I traveled the longest hundred and a few kilometers in my life, traveling from Toronto towards Niagara Falls. Nigara was very close, she beckoned, invitingly thundered somewhere there, in the distance, tossing stones and eroding the channel and calling me … Very calling!

Everyone has a dream. I’ve got plenty of them. But the desire to see three mighty waterfalls: Iguazu, Niagara, Victoria, was very strong. I was on Iguazu – it was pouring rain, washing away everything around and mixing with the waters of the waterfall. After this, the rains and waterfalls inextricably followed hand in hand, wherever I went to look at them.

Good advice to sacrifice someone’s waterfall and appease his anger rested on the Code of Criminal Procedure and the resistance of the alleged victim. I had to look for other ways and agree otherwise. It turned out that it’s easier to agree with the waterfall – a woman will always understand a woman, but I didn’t doubt for a minute that Niagara was a woman!

I whispered mantras all the way from Toronto to Niagara, persuading the weather. And the clouds began to lag behind, breaking the fog and letting out the sun’s rays to freedom.

The wheels beat against the joints of the autobahn, repeating over and over again “N – I – A – G – A – P – A” …

Sunny Bunny, breaking free, lay down on my lap and winked, promising good weather.

Ahead she flashed … Niagara !!!

And the “dream come true” came… I really wanted everything at once: to be everywhere, to watch everything, to catch Niagara’s fine water dust on her face and hair, to deafen her roar, climb to the very top and admire it all from heaven, run down and down sail the boat under whipping streams, enjoy the night beauty of the waterfall, get wet, freeze, hoarse with delight and quietly peep with joy! Everything succeeded – true, consistently and gradually.

First of all, we went, well, we ran to the Skylon Tower to see Niagara Falls as the birds see it …

Panoramic elevators are being lifted to the tower – two yellow little bugs on the tower, these are the elevators. Rising, you can admire the unfolding panorama and begin to groan and gasp with delight.

The height of the tower is 236 meters, but you forget about it, froze astonished – in all directions, to the horizon, Niagara is visible, in all its glory …

I was right – you need to watch Niagara Falls from the Canadian side. If theatrical terminology is allowed, these will be places in the royal box, in front of which the artists play their ingenious performance. Inspection of the waterfall from the American side – as if from adjoining side places, when half of the stage is poorly visible and what is happening can only be guessed from the replicas of the actors. Believe me, I looked from both sides and I know what I’m saying …

Niagara Falls consists of three waterfalls:

– Fata Falls, the most modest of them, is located on the American side.

– American Falls. Width – 323 meters, visible height – 21 meters. In fact, it is higher, about 53 meters, but at the foot of it there are a lot of stones and they visually reduce the height of the water fall. Located next to Fata, it is clear that on the American side.
