“Salvaging Experiences” (Joshua Tree and Tahquitz Falls – May 17, 2019 to May 19, 2019)

…the kids were playing Pharoah or something like that where Joshua buried himself in the sand by camp. Clearly he was oblivious to the fact that he wasn’t going to shower for another night…

Yellowstone Waterfalls Guide

The Yellowstone Waterfalls Guide is our comprehensive summary of the waterfalls in the world’s first national park. Yet, they generally don’t get quite the same notoriety as Yellowstone’s other signature features like predictable geysers or the safari-like wildlife experience…

Silver Falls State Park Waterfalls Guide

Silver Falls State Park is a waterfall lovers haven featuring ten waterfalls in a serene and compact reserve. Oddly enough, none of the waterfalls actually have the name “Silver Falls”.

Yosemite Waterfalls Guide

The Yosemite Waterfalls Guide is our summary of the waterfalls that have compelled us to visit Yosemite National Park time and time again. As a result, we’ve managed to experience almost all…

Bay Area Spring Break Itinerary – April 18, 2019 to April 24, 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…

Sempervirens Falls

Sempervirens Falls was perhaps the most family-friendly waterfall hike that I’m aware of in the Big Basin Redwoods State Park. The reason why I say this is that it involved a fairly easy…

Pomponio Falls

Pomponio Falls was kind of an incidental waterfall as the Memorial County Park had no literature even making mention of this waterfall. We found out about it from an entry in our…

Brooks Falls

Brooks Falls was really my waterfalling excuse to get in an early morning hike around the Pacifica area before returning to San Francisco for some city touring. For a waterfall this close to the…

“Spring Breaking By The Bay” (The San Francisco Bay Area – April 18, 2019 to April 24, 2019)

…Julie and Tahia made it back to the room as they were returning from their day out. Julie told me about a scary moment when an Uber driver ran the red light and they almost got broadsided…

Stairstep Falls

Stairstep Falls was one waterfall near the San Francisco Bay Area that had eluded us over the years for one reason or another. Part of the reason why this waterfall was so elusive over the years…

“Big Differences” (Escondido Falls – April 7, 2019)

Not recalling that I had to go that far up to continue the ascent, I briefly descended to where there was a familiar steep climb though it definitely lacked the vegetation that I swore was there…

“Marching Forward” (Tenaja Falls – March 31, 2019)

She suddenly started to do things like picking her nose and smearing the byproducts onto me. Or she would be snacking on puffs and leaving crumbs everywhere…

“Along The Way” (Paradise Falls – March 24, 2019)

Julie quickly handed Tahia a spare plastic bag, and roughly a few minutes later, she hurled into the bag. The foul smell of bile and other stomach acids or other nasty things definitely didn’t…

“All of L.A.” (Lake Elsinore and Ortega Falls – March 17, 2019)

We also saw lots of cars looking for parallel parking and that parking situation looked pretty hopeless. It kind of made me wonder if we should abandon our attempts at…

Top 10 Africa Waterfalls

It’s not easy to put together a Top 10 Best Africa Waterfalls List because it’s completely subjective and limited to each person’s experience with the falls being named. Not only that, but making trips to the so-called “Dark Continent” doesn’t happen often…

Top 10 Austria Waterfalls

Our list of Top 10 Best Austria Waterfalls reflected our deep desire to thoroughly experience the best that this mountainous country had to offer. While most of the tourist traffic tended to focus on Vienna, Hallstatt, Innsbruck, and Salzburg…

Top 10 Germany Waterfalls

Our list of Top 10 Best Germany Waterfalls reflected our deep desire to thoroughly experience the best that the country had to offer. We researched real hard this trip that not only took in the obvious attractions like the castles, the main cities, and the Rhine among others…

Top 10 Spain Waterfalls

Who could have guessed that putting together a Top 10 List of Best Spain Waterfalls could be so difficult? Indeed, of all the countries in Europe that we have visited, we never would have imagined the quantity of waterfalls we’ve encountered in Spain…

Top 10 Italy Waterfalls

In a country as well-touristed as Italy, you’d think its waterfalls might get a little more fanfare than it currently does. Sadly, that hasn’t been the case from what we’ve seen. So we’re trying to fix some of that by putting out this list of Top 10 Best Italy Waterfalls…

Top 10 France Waterfalls

It seemed like nothing was as underappreciated as the French Waterfalls. So to try to give them some well-deserved love, Julie and I have put together this list of Top 10 Best France Waterfalls. While most of the tourist traffic remains…
