The trip on the “Maid of the Mist” was even better than I’d imagined. I’d looked forward to it ever since I was a child. Maybe I appreciated it more now, because I found it spectacular. It was amazing to be part of those breathtaking Falls, part of such a powerful force of nature. The boat, as it has ever since 1846, ventured right into the wild waters under the thrilling falls. We definitely needed our rain ponchos, though they were no match for the “mist”, which soaked us all, thrillingly. It was a wonderful, exhilarating experience I’ll never forget.
