We started our visit to the American side of Niagara Falls where we had left off the night before, at the rapids, of course. It had been so rainy, the Niagara River was very swollen and some rapids were larger than our house. I could have sat and watched the rapids all day, but the dogs wanted to keep moving (Okay, I'll admit that I did too. The mist was just over the bridge!)
Did I say Niagara Falls State Park is one of our nations best dog friendly attractions? I meant pet friendly! We met a very sweet cat enjoying the falls that day too.
After our cat visit and quite a while soaking up the mist, we continued our hike around Goat Island, enjoying the rapids on this side too. It was our good fortune to be among the first to appreciate the newly renovated Three Sisters Islands. The bridges and trails have been redone and the islands restored with native plants.
A lot of the people I spoke with on both days of our Niagara visits, were happy to see and pet our dogs because they had left their dogs at home. Why? This trip was so pet friendly! I am so glad I got to share a visit to this gorgeous part of the world with Wilhelm, Brychwyn and Huxley. Hopefully seeing 'R' Blood on the Tracks Boys enjoying a vacation and learning about how pet friendly a visit to Niagara Falls can be, next time, people who left their dogs behind will bring their them along (and waste bags too.)
