Niagara Falls Is Still Young
Even though Niagara Falls is over 12,000 years old, it is still relatively young in geographical wonder years. When compared to sites such as the Giant Causeway columns in Ireland and the K-Pg border in the Netherlands, Niagara Falls is a baby in terms of ecology. The first mention of Niagara Falls is supposed to have originated from Samuel de Champlain's narrative in 1604, which was most likely based on a story told by local individuals de Champlain encountered. The earliest true documentation of Niagara Falls comes from French traveller Louis Hennepin in 1678.
