Niagara Falls,located on the boundary of the United States and Canada,has long been a favorite vacation spot,attracting five million visitors a year. In the past,people have challenged the falls by walking a tightrope across its width,a distance of 3,600 feet,or by going over the 167-foot drop in a barrel. The future of Niagara Falls is now under study.

The millions of gallons of water that pour form the Niagara River over the falls each minute slowly erode the underlying rock. The wearing away of rock causes the falls to recrede at the rate of one or two feet a year. Formed 12,000 years ago,Niagara Falls has since moved about seven miles back.

Scientists estimate that in about 35,000 years the now-great falls will reach Lake Erie,some twenty miles from its present site,becoming just a small waterfall at the mouth of the lake. If you want to see Niagara Falls in all its glory,be sure to make your plans well before then!
