I never would have thought Niagara Falls could ever freeze but here it is, frozen like rock.
That must have been some winter in 1911. lol
According to stats it was -40 degrees when this happened.
Most of the freezing takes place on the US side and ice thickness has been known to reach 50 feet
The river still flows underneath though. It never stops.Niagara Falls is about 180 feet deep. The falls themselves are about 180 feet high and 2500 feet wide. The water that makes up
the falls comes from four of the five Great Lakes.
By July 15, 1885, tourism and the preservation of Niagara Falls became a
priority as the 400-acre Niagara Reservation State Park officially
opened. While currently known as Niagara Falls State Park, it is the
oldest state park in the country.
The Niagara River is said to be flowing up instead of down.
Because the earth is round most rivers flow down from the north but a few flow North from the south and the Niagara is one of them flowing from NEW YORK STATE into Ontario
Pend Oreille is another one flowing from Idaho into Washington State and then British Columbia
The St Lawrence flows north west connecting the great lakes to the ocean
Vermont has many rivers flowing north into Canada.
Michael J Fox starred in a movie from that area called Where the Rivers Flow North.
