Niagara is known for the falls, but many overlook the magical Butterfly Conservatory which features over 2,000 colorful tropical butterflies floating freely among lush, exotic blossoms and greenery. Paths wind through the rainforest setting, past a pond and waterfall and the Emergence window, where butterflies leave their pupae and prepare to take their first flight! The self-guided walking tour of the Butterfly Conservatory prepared me with a short, informative video presentation.
Fully prepared I enjoyed a magical path winding through a warm rainforest filled with butterflies floating freely through the air. I wish all of us could enjoy such serenity in our lives.
Yes, I braved the freezing rain to witness the classic North American landmark, Niagara Falls from the Canadian side. Its breathtaking beauty have been revered by generations of awestruck visitors. Today, Niagara Falls State Park welcomes visitors through freezing rain and wind who bring their spirit of adventure to experience this special place, with one of the world’s most popular attractions as its centerpiece. I was there and I’ll try to return for photos as weather permits.
