北美行~~陪Matthew 赴加拿大多倫多就學D 4 (2021.09.04)

American Falls from Nikola Tesla Monument (3)

American Falls from Nikola Tesla Monument

女兒今天送兒子到到多倫多,因加拿大目前對外國僅開放美國人入境,其他外國人士則計畫自97日起才開放施打完整兩劑疫苗之國際旅客入境,因此我們兩老就在水牛城的Niagara Falls State Park閒晃一天!

早晨07:45由住宿民宿出發,約在08:30左右抵達Goat Island停車場,女兒讓我倆下車後載著Matthew續往多倫多。

尼加拉大瀑布(Niagara Falls)是由三座位於北美洲五大湖區尼加拉河上瀑布的總稱,與伊瓜蘇瀑布(Iguazu Falls)、維多利亞瀑布(Victoria Falls)並稱為世界三大跨國瀑布。

整個瀑布跨越加拿大的安大略省和美國的紐約州構成南部的尼加拉峽谷;三座瀑布按規模從大到小分別為馬蹄瀑布(Horseshoe Falls),美國瀑布(American Falls),新娘面紗瀑布(Bridal Veil Falls)。其中,馬蹄瀑布位於美國和加拿大的邊境,美國瀑布全部位於美國境內並由山羊島(Goat Island)分隔開。最小的新娘面紗瀑布也在美國境內,由月神島(Luna Island)從美國瀑布隔開。

 

馬蹄瀑布(Horseshoe Falls)為三座瀑布中最大的瀑布,也稱加拿大瀑布(Canadian Falls),橫跨美加兩國,占尼加拉河約90%的水量,河水呈青色,瀑布呈半環型,寬670公尺,落差57公尺。

美國瀑布(American Falls)為第二大瀑布,在東側美國境內,占尼加拉河約10%的水量,河水呈藍色,瀑布寬260公尺,落差21-34公尺。

新娘面紗瀑布(Bridal Veil Falls)為最小的瀑布,在美國境內,瀑布寬15公尺,落差24-31公尺。

Three Sisters Islands

三姐妹島是位於Goat Island南海岸線以外的島嶼,這些島嶼是紐約尼加拉大瀑布的一部分,由Terrapin Point沿步道東行約800公尺即抵達Three Sisters Islands的入口。

三姐妹島是以尼加拉瀑布城的General Parkhurst Whitney的女兒CelindaAngelina Asenath Whitney命名,General Parkhurst Whitney是紐約尼加拉瀑布的早期定居者。Three Sister Islands (1)Three Sister Islands (6)

Goat Island另有一刺激景點是風洞之旅(Cave of the Winds),遊客可購票下到瀑布下端感受瀑布沖刷的快感,我和太座對此沒很大興趣所以就沒去參觀;我們在Goat Island悠閒的觀瀑賞景,直到下午女兒自多倫多返回才離開Goat Island回到住宿民宿。
