Product details - The evolution of the falls fun facts there are three waterfalls that make up niagara falls. The canadian horseshoe falls, the american falls and the bridal veil falls. Niagara falls was created 12,500 years ago when thick layers of sheets of ice that once covered the land melted and drained. Due to a violent encounter the niagara riverbed was buried from the last ice age joined the niagara river. The falls tore out the glacial debris and filled it with water. When the ice melted, the water flowed from the upper great lakes into the niagara river which followed the topography of the land to the niagara escarpment niagara falls, the great lakes and the niagara river were all created due to the wisconsin glaciation. The rock that formed niagara falls was composed of limestone and dolostone. Over 10,000 years ago niagara falls was once located where queenston, ontario and lewiston, new york are located. The water from the glaciers melted creating a steady flow of water over the crest of the rock. The canadian horseshoe falls is the most powerful waterfall in north america, however it is not the tallest or widest. Goat island is an island in between the american falls and the bridal veil falls. The island was created when the falls retreated and cut inward towards the niagara escarpment. The channel of the river cuts into two creating two waterfalls. The island has a population of zero. The island is connected to the u.s. Mainland by two bridges, carrying by foot, car to luna island. The island is wooded island and had many foot trail paths. As the falls continues to erode upstream many predict that the land will be no more. The canadian horseshoe once had a wide crest forming the letter ‘v’, however due to erosion the crest began forming the shape of the horseshoe. The waterfalls lie between 27 km 17 miles from north northwest buffalo, new york to 121 km 75 miles south southeast to toronto between the cities of niagara falls, new york and niagara falls, canada. Terrapin point is once known as terrapin rocks is located in niagara falls, new york just northwest of goat island and located beside the canadian horseshoe falls. In the mid twentieth century terrapin rocks was a group of rocks at the brink of the falls disconnected from the goat island. Terrapin tower, a lighthouse was created overlooking the canadian horseshoe falls. The tower was deemed as unsafe and was removed. In 1983, the united states army corps of engineers blasted away 25,000 tons of rock adding more landfill. In the 19th century, table rock was considered the only observation point for visitors to see the falls up close. In 1818, the first part of the falls collapsed followed by a second and third collapse in 1828 and 1829. Table rock is a popular site for tourists to overlook the falls. It is quite popular in the winter months when the mist of the falls freezes around the falls and on the rocks creating beautiful one of a kind ice formations.download a hi res map
