Canada - Skylon Tower The 25 miles long Niagara River is the connection between the Erie Sea and the 62 miles long Ontario Sea, which forms the Niagara Falls: in the East the American Fall (height: 180 ft / 55 m, width: 1148 ft / 350m), in the North the Canadian Fall, also called the "Horseshoe Fall", (height: 161 ft / 49 m, width: 2788 ft / 850 m. 

The Falls are best viewed from the Canadian site, where also is located the "Skylon Tower", an observation tower, which offers breathtaking panoramic views of the whole area. 

When we arrived in the evening we saw the Falls floodlighted in all rainbow colors until midnight - grandiose!

These were unforgettable and unimaginable impressions - one simply must have experienced this ...
