Sunrise at Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls at Sunrise

I slept in my car last night, God only knows where. I had a campsite picked out, but then it was pouring rain and I wasn’t tired so I kept driving until fatigue finally overcame me. In the morning, the sun started coming up around the time my back started hurting, so I put Rubes in gear and we headed for Niagara Falls.

We got there bright and early. And I mean, super early. Like maybe 5:00 or 6:00 a.m. I’ve never been much for checking the time (except when I have a “real” job and I desperately want to go home).

There are pros and cons of being at the Falls at this un-Godly hour.

Pro: Watching the sunrise over Niagara Falls. Does it get better than that??

Con: The garbage. The cleaning crew gets there early in the morning; things are pristine by the time normal people get there.

Pro: No crowds. I had this thing all to myself.

Con: Some of the stuff isn’t open yet… like the restrooms. :-/

Pro: The parking was free.

Overall, a really fantastic way to start the day. 🙂
