Sunset Beach, NC and Beyond: October 2011

Travel over Niagara Falls in a barrel, sure why not?

Travel over Niagara Falls in a Barrel, sure why not??
The Sunset Beach Team headed from Sunset Beach, North Carolina to see Niagara Falls. Will they go over it in a barrel??

Niagara Falls was never meant to be traveled over with a barrel but foolishly the first person to survive the trip over the Niagara Falls was a 63 year old schoolteacher by the name of Annie Taylor in 1901.

Niagara Falls is meant to be admired and viewed from a distance. You didn't really think The Sunset Beach Team would go over in a barrel??

Think of the what the force of water is when 681,750 gallons comes crashing down on you from “The Horseshoe Falls” in a mere second of time from a height of 167 feet. Would you believe the force is approximately 2,509 tons!!

We chose to view Niagara Falls from afar a few different ways. Our first view was as we walked along River Road.  We were able to see Niagara Falls from the walkway.  

Did you know that Niagara Falls collectively is three falls.
 
American Falls/Bridal Veil Falls/Canadian/Horseshoe Falls

The American Falls is between Prospect Point and Luna Island (far left in picture)

Bridal Veil Falls is between Luna Island and Goat Island  (mid left in picture)

Canadian/Horseshoe Falls is between Goat Island and Table Rock (on right in picture)


The Sunset Beach Team's next adventure on the Canadian Side of Niagara Falls will be the Daring Trip on the "Maid of the Mist"
