Nature In All Its Glory

 








The Niagara Glen
My family took a hike at what they call the Glen in Niagara Falls.  It is a place you can hike down and get right up close to the Whirlpool.  The water runs super fast.  This huge area is where the Niagara Falls use to be, many, many years ago.  The water from the Falls actually carved the land and made this beautiful area.

Here are a few pictures of us taking a hike and having a little cook out for dinner.

Do you think I could get up on that rock?

I LOVE it down here!!

Something is not right here

Tree huggers

I LOVE THIS PICTURE!!!

Those boulders are huge!


 
Here is Lukas just getting home from school standing in front of the tree.  This tree was very healthy.  That wind was strong!


This is a tree that got knocked over during a terrible wind storm.  It took the fence and wires with it.

Thankfully we were all fine during this storm.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all that suffered during these storms that went across the States.  It just goes to show you what Mother Nature can do.  From creating a beautiful Glen, to creating devistation and distruction in areas that were once beautiful.  Thats why we have to count our Blessings everyday and Love and respect God and all His people.
