A December sunrise enhances the majestic beauty of the Horseshoe Falls. It is called as Horseshoe Falls because it is in the shape of a horseshoe.
Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that straddle the international border between Canada and the United States.
Many years ago, people would go over the falls in barrels!
Now, it's illegal.
If anyone dare to across the Niagara Falls on tight ropes ?
YES ! In 2012, Nik Wallenda did that. Wallenda became the first person to cross directly over Niagara Falls on a high wire.
Brave ? Wacky ?
