Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is the biggest waterfall in ths U.S. It is visited by many people every year. 30 million people every year to be exact. I will be talking about the history of Niagara Falls. I will also be talking about what Niagara Falls looks like. If Niagara Falls was never formed what would be the biggest waterfall.


In the beginning Niagara Falls had a long history. Niagara Falls was made 12,000 years ago. Niagara Falls formed on its own by rivers, wind, and glaciers. The Niagara Falls state park is the oldest state park in the U.S. The American and bridal rivers were shut off by the U.S in 1969. Niagara Falls took a long time to form.


After that, nature made Niagara Falls. No actual person ever created Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls formed on its own through elements. The 3 rivers that create Niagara Falls are the American falls, the bridal veil, and the horseshoe falls. The formation of Niagara Falls is a very long one. It still goes on today. The annual freezing and thawing of the Niagara Falls river still wears away at the rocks under the surface.


The Niagara Falls river is about 58 kilo (36 mi) in length. The water that flows over the fall is at 25-50% capacity at any given time. It is located in New York, United States. It represents the biggest waterfall in the U.S.


Niagara Falls is a humongous waterfall. There is so much water around Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls stands (57m) tall. It has huge rocks around it to keep the water flow steady because the rocks block some of it. Water pours very very fast.


Finally, the things I wrote about in my paragraphs were Niagara Falls past. I also talked about the creation of Niagara Falls. I talked about some cool characteristics of Niagara Falls. And last I talked about how beautiful Niagara Falls is. If Niagara Falls was never formed which waterfall would be the biggest.
