Somewhere Over the Rainbow Bridge


Back in May, Jersey Iggy scoped out the stretch of the international Rainbow Bridge which connects New York and Ontario, Canada over the Niagara River gorge. Two other bridges, namely the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge and the Whirlpool Bridge, also provide passage between the U.S. and Canada in the Niagara Falls vicinity, but this one is the closest to the Niagara Falls State Park in New York, as observed here from the top of the Observation Tower.

Some tourists prefer to walk across this bridge on its designated pedestrian lane for a unique walking and photography experience. Of course, you have to bring proper travel documents even if you're just traveling by foot as you'll be crossing an international border.


Here's Miss Iggy at the top of the Observation Tower, about to ride the elevator that will take her down the foot of the gorge to board the Maid of the Mist boat ride.


Miss Iggy below the Observation Tower, where you can see the dark rainclouds already rolling in the sky (which explains the need to use flash). The row of dots you see on the edge of the tower above are actually tourists enjoying the Niagara Falls scenery around them.
