Above is Joyce standing on the walkway that was completely covered with a thick sheet of ice. She ventured further than I would. Luckily, they finished an overlook near the road last year as we were not going down to the falls. We did run into a man that actually made it down there and had photos he took. We aren't sure how he made it unless he had metal spikes on his shoes. Joyce fell on the Wall of China in November when there was ice and snow on it, so she wanted to be careful also.
I failed to take my lens hood with me when I left the car, so I had a problem with sun flare where you get the little spots of light in the photo. You can see what I am talking about on the third photo at the top of the falls. We are making note of all the things we need to learn to do and to remember for our big trip!
