Our second very wet experience at Niagara Falls was called 'Cave of the Winds' (see note in comments below) and involved taking a lift down 170 feet to the bottom of the Niagara Gorge.
From the path which ran alongside the river, this was our view back towards the Horseshoe Falls and the Canadian side of the river.
We were heading for a wooden staircase with a series of platforms, built at the side of the American Falls. The water was rushing past us - and much of the spray and splash straight over us!
It soon became obvious why we had been issued not only with waterproof ponchos but also special rubber sandals. We were carrying our shoes in a plastic bag!
As we climbed, the noise of the water got louder and the splashing stronger, until we reached the 'hurricane deck', where all hope of keeping anything dry was lost.
