Niagara Falls are a natural wonder. The Niagara River rumbles to the precipice and then falls almost two hundred feet. The waters crash and thunder, creating a watery fog, a mist in the air.

There are gulls everywhere in this place, flying about as gulls will. That is save for one. This guard, this overseeing gull, looks askance at all who pass. This gull determines our worthiness of the privilege of seeing this phenomenon. And in our good fortune, the gull lets us pass.
