The Falls and Skylon Tower, Canada

After that nice hike in the morning on the Whirlpool Trail, we decided we needed a nice dinner at the top of the Skylon Tower just across the border in Canada.  Great views of the falls and later, at dark, the illumination.  What a treat!

looking at the falls from the Canadian side with the American Falls and Bridal Falls on the left and Horseshoe Falls on the right separated by Goat Island the Horseshoe Falls are in Canada.

from street level the falls are stunning this time of day, about 6:30pm eastern

We took the Rainbow Bridge on the left across the Niagara to Canadas city of Niagara Falls
