Top 10 Canada Waterfalls

It took a while for us to confidently have a list of Top 10 Best Canada Waterfalls. But after making multiple visits to various parts of this vast country, we finally made it happen. Oh Canada, indeed! Considering that we only base this list upon our own personal experiences…

Julian and Borrego Springs Itinerary – February 8, 2019 to February 10, 2019

This was a quick weekend getaway trip to celebrate Valentine’s Day a week early. The timing was about right because we managed to avoid pretty heavy Winter storms in the Anza Borrego desert while also leaving Julian right before the next round of oncoming Winter snows…

Green Valley Falls

Green Valley Falls was really more of a Summer time swimming hole. Consisting of an upper and lower waterfall set, I saw the potential for a very happening spot to cool off from the heat and take…

Borrego Palm Canyon Falls

Borrego Palm Canyon Falls was our main waterfalling excuse to explore the most popular trail in the Anza Borrego State Park. The Borrego Palm Canyon Trail earned its notoriety because the…

“Chilling Out” (Anza Borrego and Julian – February 8, 2019 to February 10, 2019)

When Julie finally got back to the trailhead at 12:25pm, she told me that she saw a ram! And she made sure to let me know that I should have taken the main trail back instead of the alternate one…

Top 10 Montana Waterfalls

Julie and I didn’t realize that we had enough of a collection of experiences to come up with a legitimate Top 10 List of Best Montana Waterfalls. But as you can see from the presence of this page, we certain do have enough to pick out our favorites…

Top 10 Utah Waterfalls

Shocking both Julie and I, we never realized that the state of Utah could have enough waterfalls to even realize a respectable Top 10 List of Best Utah Waterfalls. Yet after visiting the Beehive state countless times over the years, we feel like we can finally…

Top 10 North Carolina Waterfalls

The state of North Carolina featured numerous waterfalls in its western half, which we experienced for ourselves on a single trip in the Autumn of 2012. So with all the photos and data we’ve collected, it was about time we put out a list of Top 10 Best North Carolina Waterfalls…

Top 10 Washington Waterfalls

Julie and I have been on a handful of trips to the state of Washington. So we feel that we have enough of a library of waterfalling experiences to put together this list of Top 10 Best Washington Waterfalls…

Top 10 Oregon Waterfalls

After visiting well over 40 waterfalls on at least three separate visits in the state, we were long overdue to come out with a list of the Top 10 Best Oregon Waterfalls. And while we recognize that plenty of waterfalls reside…

Placerita Creek Falls

Placerita Creek Falls (also known as the Los Pinetos Waterfall since it was near the Los Pinetos Canyon) was another one of those waterfalls that we had procrastinated on visiting for one reason or…

Santa Ynez Falls

Santa Ynez Falls was one of those waterfalls we had put off doing after all the years we had been waterfalling locally in Southern California. We adopted this mentality because we tended…

“Shaking Off The Cobwebs” (Santa Ynez Falls and Placerita Creek Falls – January 19, 2019)

So given all of those factors, today’s excursion really felt like we were shaking off the cobwebs and getting back into the old MO of doing waterfall hikes opportunistically while writing about our…

Top 10 Yellowstone Waterfalls

Our list of the Top 10 Yellowstone Waterfalls is a way for us to acknowledge these unsung attractions in the world’s first national park. Indeed, variety reigns supreme where geysers, colorful pools, heaps of wildlife, and a Grand Canyon of its own all compete…

Top 10 Yosemite Waterfalls

After all the years we’ve visited, re-visited, camped, backpacked, and explored Yosemite National Park, it’s about time that we compile a list of the Top 10 Best Yosemite Waterfalls. Indeed, we’re quite familiar with this treasure of our home state…

Top 10 Japan Waterfalls

Putting together a Top 10 Best Japan Waterfalls List was something I had been meaning to do, especially after making a second visit here back in late 2016. So this challenging task was long overdue…

Top 10 China Waterfalls

It’s not easy to put together a Top 10 Best China Waterfalls List because it’s completely subjective and limited to each person’s experience with the mentioned waterfalls. Indeed, since we only make these lists based on our own personal experiences…

The German Language

One of the things that I learned when Julie and I turned our attention internationally to go waterfalling is that travel is all about building bridges between your own perception of the world and what actually happens in the real world…

California Highlights

Even though this is a waterfalls website, we recognize that there are many highlights in our home state of California (both involving and not involving waterfalls). So we’ve come up with this page to pay homage to some of the highlights that we…

Big Sur Quick Getaway Itinerary – November 16, 2018 to November 18, 2018

This was a quick weekend getaway trip to celebrate Julie’s birthday. Given that we needed some time off from Tahia and from all my troubles with the big website migration as well as the usual day job dramas, Julie and I did this trip alone…
