Niagra Falls, American Bridal Falls and the Canadian Horseshoe Falls

We were in Niagara falls a few days ago.


The American Bridal Falls were mostly frozen and the Canadian Horseshoe Falls were fairly open but the Niagara River was almost entirely frozen over.



Back in 1848 the falls actually stopped running due to a huge ice dam on the river.
The falls stopped for about 30 hours before the pressure broke the jam.
