Niagara Falls at Night With Lights

Did you know Niagara Falls is lit up at night? They have been lighting up Niagara Falls dating back to 1860 when Bengal Lights were used to celebrate a visit by the Prince of Wales. Since 1925 the falls have been lit almost every night except for during WW II when the falls could have been a target to knock out the hydro power. They light Niagara Falls at night to attract and keep visitors overnight to fill up all the hotel rooms where people can view the lit falls right from their rooms until midnight. The effect of the lights is quite spectacular.

I've just been watching that Ken Burns special on the national parks. He uses Niagra Falls as the example of what would have happened if commercial developers had had their way with Yosemite and Yellowstone.
Somehow, seeing those pastel lights makes me appreciate our national parks even more!
