California: Travel Blog: Ladybugs of the Heart

I eventually scrambled up to rejoin Julie and Tahia where they were snacking on broccoli chips. As we were snacking up here, we were suddenly inundated in an insect swarm. It was quite a surreal...

American Southwest Waterfalls: New Mexico

New Mexico Waterfalls seemed like an oxymoron to us as we thought this state was nothing but desert, aliens (think Roswell), and nuclear research projects (think Manhattan Project) as well as...

"Medium Falls" (Mt Charleston, Nevada, USA)

"Medium Falls" was a name I made up for this waterfall because it sat in between Little Falls and Big Falls on the northeast-facing slopes of Kyle Canyon. I could have easily called it "Lost Falls"...

Little Falls (Mt Charleston, Nevada, USA)

Little Falls was almost the waterfall that got away when I attempted to visit it right after doing the Mary Jane Falls hike. The problem was that the trail to access this waterfall wasn't terribly...

Mary Jane Falls (Mt Charleston, Nevada, USA)

Mary Jane Falls had to have been hands down the most popular hike in the Mt Charleston area. I had to have counted dozens of large hiking groups when I was making my way back down from the falls...

Faux Falls (near Moab, Utah, USA)

Faux Falls was another one of the waterfalling surprises during our return trip to Moab, Utah in 2017. Like the name suggests the waterfall was technically not real ("faux" is French for something...

Mill Creek Falls ["Left Hand"] (Moab, Utah, USA)

Mill Creek Falls was an unexpected natural waterfall surprise that I hadn't planned on visiting when we made a return trip to Moab 16 years after our first visit. Waterfalls weren't even on our...

Bridal Veil Falls (Hanging Lake Park, Colorado, USA)

Few waterfalls could take your breath away, but the Bridal Veil Falls at Hanging Lake pretty much did just that - both literally and figuratively. The picture you see at the top of this page only...

North Clear Creek Falls (Rio Grande National Forest, Colorado, USA)

North Clear Creek Falls was a waterfall that I wound up going a bit out of the way for even though it was said to be a pretty easy-to-visit drive-to waterfall. Indeed, as you can see from the photo...

Cascade Falls (Ouray, Colorado, USA)

Cornet Falls (Telluride, Colorado, USA)

Cornet Falls was perhaps the waterfall that stole the show when it came to waterfalling the Telluride area. As you can see from the photo above, this 80ft waterfall had a lot going for it - the red...

Bridal Veil Falls (Telluride, Colorado, USA)

Bridal Veil Falls was said to be the tallest permanent free-falling waterfall in the state of Colorado at 365ft. Obviously when we first were made aware of the falls, it was high on our priority list.

Jemez Falls (Santa Fe National Forest, New Mexico, USA)

Jemez Falls was perhaps the most satisfying of the waterfalls in the state of New Mexico that I had encountered during a 2017 Spring Break Trip to the Desert Southwest. That was because it was...

Nambe Falls (near Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA)

Travertine Falls (Cibola National Forest, New Mexico, USA)

Slide Rock (Coconino National Forest, Arizona, USA)

Slide Rock was one of those waterfalling excursions that probably stretched the definition of what a waterfall was in our experience. It was really a series of small cascades (the tallest one...

San Ysidro Falls (Santa Barbara County, California, USA)

California: Travel Blog: Itchy, Scratchy, and Crawly

With the time being 2:50pm, I figured that it would probably be another 40-50 minutes before we'd finally be back at the trailhead. But at least now, we knew that we'd be hiking on trail again...

West Fork Falls (Palm Springs, California, USA)

West Fork Falls was a bit of an unexpected waterfall for us as we weren't aware of its existence when we planned for a recent Palm Springs trip in 2017. However, when we noticed this waterfall on...

Dana Point Waterfall (Dana Point, California, USA)

The Dana Point Waterfall was something we weren't really made aware of until recently when it popped up on one of the Orange County blogs. Perhaps part of the reason why this place was so unknown...

Cedar Creek Falls (Cleveland National Forest / Julian / Ramona, California, USA)

Aliso Viejo Waterfall (near Irvine, California, USA)
