Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls

Thursday, January 11, 2018


It could be argued that while I was living in Cleveland, I might have neglected the fact that my hometown is like, a wonder of the United States and stuff. Sometimes I just forget that it's there. Francesca, how the fuhhh do you forget that there are three waterfalls that might as well be in your backyard? And well, just like anything else: you just become immune to it.

Also, like, fun fact: Niagara Falls has three waterfalls. Not one, but three. On the USA side, there's the American Falls (creative, right?), the Bridal Veil Falls (my personal favorite), and the Horseshoe Falls. Well, we have like half of it or some portion of it. The rest is in our favorite polite neighbor of the north, Canada. The Horseshoe Falls is what most people probably see on like postcards and stuff, but now y'all know a trivia question about how many waterfalls actually make up Niagara Falls. 

Did you guys click on this post thinking you were going to be getting facts about Niagara Falls? Didn't think so. You're welcome for expanding your knowledge.



I looked like a tourist taking these photos, but like, you gotta do what you gotta do when this is the kind of scenery that is like, fifteen minutes from your house if traffic is "bad." It's kind of funny that I tend to complain that there's nowhere to take pictures here. I typically mean building wise because, if you didn't know, it's not exactly the most...glamorous city. But then you venture away from the houses and buildings and have...this. Even when it's partially frozen, it's still a sight. Love you, boo! Boo is the American Falls in this case, the true star of these photos, let's be real.



Should I have planned more to talk about today? Most likely. But I'm just going to kick back, relax, and let the pictures speak for themselves. I'm not always kind to my hometown, but I should be. Sorry! You raised me well for seventeen years and now I'm back.

Also like, HI CANADA! You can see Niagara Falls, Ontario in the background, the arguably (okay, not arguably, but there's an unspoken rule that Niagara Falls, New York dwellers cannot admit that the Canadian side is better even if it very clearly is, it's a pride thing, sorry Canadian pals! We both know the truth in our hearts) more entertaining side of the falls.

  2. First off, that location is stunning.
    I've always wanted to visit Niagra Falls and haven't yet (which is a shame because I live in NY).
    Second, I need those boots. Except I'll be in Georgia next winter and won't need them. *Cries*

    1. You definitely should! Even if the city itself doesn't have a lot, Lewiston and parts of Buffalo are really cool and worth checking out too. Also, these boots were like....my best investment ever. Super warm, waterproof, and not totally ugly for winter boots. But you're lucky you won't be needing them anymore, that means no more snow!!!

  3. I have always wanted to go the Niagra Falls! The furthest north I have ever been is Tennessee though!
