I'm not sure if you are all aware, but I live in Niagara Falls, New York. Yep, that famous waterfall is practically in my backyard. Although I live here, I really don't visit this natural wonder all that often. But, with all of the chatter this winter about them freezing over, the Mr and I thought it would be fun to go check it out and snap some pics. We walked around the American side last weekend- it was incredibly cold, so I super chic in a pair of old, velour sweatpants, circa 2006. Stylin'. No judgement, please- when it's negative temperatures you need to dress for warmth over style.
The falls were definitely not frozen, but quite a bit of the surrounding areas were and it was pretty amazing to see. So much of the park was covered in ice and snow, the snowbanks were more like little mountains, and we weren't the only crazy people there taking pictures in the Arctic-like night air.

We decided to take a quick trip over the bridge last night into Canada to get some pictures of the view from the other side. The Canadian view has always been known as the better view since you can definitely see more of the waterfall. The colored lights projected on it made it look absolutely magical. It think it was actually warmer last night than it was last week, but I was still completely frozen. Even with gloves on, my fingers felt numb and my jeans were definitely not cutting it for warmth. The cold air aside, the view was certainly breathtaking from Canada.
