Here is the Adam Beck Power Generating station on the Canadian side of the Niagara River taken from the air on the U.S. side of the river. In the background is the Queenston-Lewiston bridge between Canada and the U.S. Lot’s of trucks on it the day the picture was taken.

Then it’s on to the Floral Clock, followed by Queenston Heights and the beginning of the Falls outlook.

And then there are thousands of visitors to the Floral Clock. The plants that make up the design are changed a couple of times a year by the gardeners at Niagara.

The gardeners at Niagara are kept busy making sure every is bright and beautiful. Here is one of the tulip beds at the floral clock.

One of the locals taking a walk through the Floral Clock area. Racoons are pretty common, good for pictures, but don’t get too close, they have sharp claws and teeth.

From Queenston Heights, we drop off the escarpment down to the Niagara Wine Region.

In the picture above, the Niagara River finally leaves the gorge and spreads out into the Queenston Canada and Lewiston, New York wine region. Off in the distance is Niagara on the Lake and Lake Ontario where all that water that flows over the Falls ends up.
