In winter, it is really difficult to stay outside and take a lot of photos because it's super cold. We did our best to take as many pictures and at the same time, admire the majestic waterfall. No regrets going there.

In late September it was VERY windy and cold, but this is really something to see. Very dramatic water fall. Nice gift shop as well.

What an impressive display of power! The two steps in the wsterfall make it a great spectacle. With the ice you get a very nice feel to it. The ice sadly also prevents you from getting too close to it, so you will need to...More
