I can drive to Niagra Falls within about 7 hours, if traffic is good, but I’ve never really had the desire to make the journey. Niagra Falls typically instills visions of large tour groups, cheap honeymoons from shotgun weddings and hundreds of Japanese tour groups taking endless snapshots. I was surprised to find, however, that the actual Niagra Falls National Park is not like that – it’s beautifully peaceful and non-commercial, while the falls themselves are spectacular.
On my way up to Toronto to visit my snowboard buddies, my friend Kenan and I decided to take a diversion to the Falls and I am very happy that we did. It was a beautiful late-August day and the Falls were as pretty as can be.
