Black felt box included
Actually comprised of three waterfalls, the great Niagara is made up of the American, Horseshoe, and Bridal Veil Falls. The falls are estimated to be about 12,000 years old and stems from the upper Great Lakes- where it is positioned between the United States and Canada. The great power of the falls allows it to be the largest source of electric power in the world. Today, much of the water at the falls is fed to hydro-electric power stations via underground channels and pipes- in order to slow the erosion of the falls.
Some evenings, the falls are illuminated with colored lights which add a different dimension to their beauty. The oldest attraction at the falls is the “Maid of the Mist” boat cruise; another attraction is the “Spanish Aero Car” which goes over the Whirlpool. Other than sanctioned attractions, people have made their own fun (albeit dangerous) by going over in barrels and even walking across on a tightrope.
This ornament is a wonderful keepsake to remember your visit to Niagara Falls, and a great gift for every collector of Niagara memorabilia.
