The East Coast of the United States and Canada was slammed by a “bomb cyclone”, a low-pressure weather system similar to a hurricane which brought snow, ice, and strong winds even to places that rarely snows like certain parts of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

The extreme cold weather froze parts of the running water of the Niagara Falls, which turns it into a beautiful natural winter wonderland.

Wallenda tightrope walks across Niagara Falls

19 06 2012

On Friday June 15, 2012, aerialist Nik Wallenda became the first person to cross over the Niagara Falls on tightrope.

An aerialist is an acrobat who performs in the air, on a suspended apparatus such as a trapezeropecloud swingaerial cradleaerial silkaerial hoop, or dance pole.

He walked on a 2-inch (5-cm) cable from the U.S. side to the Canadian side over the Horseshoe Falls in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

He must be very brave. 

I had visited the Niagara Falls, New York and I wish to visit the falls again but I would not want to try to cross it on tightrope because it is too dangerous.

So, I’ll use the Rainbow Bridge to cross the falls to Canada.
