These tourists stand at one of the many viewpoints along the top of the Horseshoe Falls in Ontario, Canada as they snap pictures of the amazing rush of water that flows over Niagara Falls. The spray from the thundering water rises up which is actually a nice feeling on a hot summer day in Niagara Falls.
These falls originated from a receding glacier and have made Niagara Falls one of the busiest places in Ontario for tourists. The Horseshoe Falls are mainly on the Ontario side of the border while the American Falls border Canada and the United States.
The water on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls plunges over the cliff for 167 feet before reaching the pool at the base of the falls. The majority of the water crashes over the crest of the Horseshoe Falls at a speed of about twenty miles per hour and some days it can be difficult viewing them due to the amount of mist.
