 Journey Behind the FallsNiagara Falls, CanadaJust outside Journey behind the Falls Is the best view of Niagara Falls. You can stand just above them where the water plunges over the falls and you really feel the power. #hiking #touristspots #scenicviews #scenic #photo #photography #photoop #canada #waterfall #waterfalls #water
