Sand and rocks on beach at Evangola State Park

Towards the end of July, we visited the Buffalo/Niagara region in New York and Canada. One of our excursions included a trip to Lake Erie. I was so excited about this since I'd never actually seen any of the Great Lakes close up (only a distant view between two homes years before). We spent a few hours at the beach. One of the notable things I saw was the sand and rocks. The sand was an interesting color and many fascinating rocks were washed ashore.

I got down low to get a closer look at the sand and rocks

These rocks were all along the shore, but once you went into the water, it was all sand

Rainbow views of Niagara Falls

I've been to Niagara Falls a number of times, but in July 2017 was the first time I'd ever seen a rainbow over this magnificent work of nature. Here are some photos I'd taken:

Rainbows in the mist of the American Falls (that's Bridal Veil Falls off to the right)
