The American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls are both fed from the same tributary of the Niagara River. This picture is not far from the brink of the Bridal Veil Falls as the water gets ready to plummet over and into the gorge below.
The Rapids Above The American Falls
Immediately above the American & Bridal Veil Falls the water flows toward the brink at a good clip. There it begins to fall over the rocks and crevices before tumbling over the Bridal Veil Falls.
