Autumn is a wonderful season no matter where you are. If you live in an area where they refer to “autumn”, chances are you experience the changes of the four seasons. We all love the cooler temperatures, and refreshment from the summer’s heat. The variation of foliage brings an array of colors and salutes the majesty of creation.
Having traveled and lived in various area through our lives, we just happen to think that Niagara likes to show off a bit.
Niagara loves to grow an abundant harvest. It loves to party. It loves to dress up to the hilt. It loves to share all of this with you!
Winter is a season of controversy. Many folks either love it or hate it. There is no doubt that living near Buffalo, NY has given Niagara a bad rap from January through March. Yet actually, there is much awe and inspiring beauty during these cold winter months.
Christmas decorates the malls. The holidays celebrate December. Icicles dance in sparkling shows of glitter and glam, while people sing and celebrate you home through New Years.
Indoors we dine and civilize in the warmth of each others company and class.
There are cleared paths and trails for walking, and places for skating and nearby skiing.
We all look forward to spring, with the hope of new life and regeneration.
“crocuses show their little heads, gracefully leading the way.
The blossoms sprout, the lilies sing, in a dazzling, joyful floral array.”
See… Just thinking about it makes us wax poetic (Mom’s the corny one.)
To visit Niagara in the spring is to see a tumbling and effervescent declaration of life!
The ice is let out of the Lake Erie boom and jostles its way over the abrupt precipice.
And then there’s summer. we all love summer, as long as the temperature doesn’t spike!
And summer is the Niagara we all know and love. Cool refreshing breezes blow in from the Great Lakes and the many trees provide ample shade. Oh yes, we have our heat too, but what a refreshing way to cool down, standing by the edge of the abyss, immersed in the spray stirred up by the crashing turquoise waters.
The Jet Boat and the Maid of the Mist are two ways of getting right down into the turbulence and rapids, experiencing the water like no other! But even in the rush of the summer season, there are gentle times and places that allow for lingering ruminations.
Hawks, buzzards and varied bird life soar high above the gorge, while the great outdoors is just waiting to be experienced. Festivals, music, concerts, and such soar in their own way as well!
So pick, your favorite season and come on by. We’d love to have you!
