Nature says I'm boss

Niagara Falls known to be the collective name for three waterfalls that stand wide apart the international border between the Canadian province of Ontario and the U.S. state of New York. They form the southern end of the Niagara Gorge. From largest to smallest, the three waterfalls are the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. The Horseshoe Falls lie on the Canadian side as well as the American Falls on the American side, separated by Goat Island. The smaller Bridal Veil Falls are also located on the American side, separated from the other waterfalls by Luna Island. In actuality, the international boundary line was originally drawn through Horseshoe Falls in 1819, yet the boundary has long been in dispute due to natural erosion and construction.

Watch it with full screen

Located on the Niagara River, which drains Lake Erie into Lake Ontario, the combined falls form the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world, with a vertical drop of beyond 165 feet (50 m). Horseshoe Falls is the most powerful waterfall in North America, as measured by vertical height and also by flow rate. The falls are located 17 miles (27 km) north-northwest of Buffalo, New York and 75 miles (121 km) south-southeast of Toronto, between the twin cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario, as well as Niagara Falls, New York.

Niagara Falls were formed when glaciers became more distant at the end of the Wisconsin glaciation (the last ice age), and water from the newly formed Great Lakes carved a path through the Niagara Escarpment en route to the Atlantic Ocean.

Even though not exceptionally high, the Niagara Falls are very wide. Beyond six million cubic feet (168,000 m3) of water falls over the crest line every minute in high flow, and almost four million cubic feet (110,000 m3) on average. The Niagara Falls are renowned both for their beauty and as a valuable source of hydroelectric power. There shouldn’t be any doubt that it's a challenging way to coordinate stability between entertainment, commercial, as well as industrial uses has been a challenge for the employees of the falls since the 19th century.
