“Child’s Water Play” (Bass Lake – August 16, 2019 to August 18, 2019)

..I was busy taking pictures before heading out, we noticed that Sophia slipped and fell into a shallow part of Willow Creek. Dad aggressively went into the creek after her when he, too, slipped…

“Approved By Nature” (Fjord Norway and Southern Norway – July 15, 2019 to July 25, 2019)

Going down seemed to be every bit as treacherous as going up was hot and tiring. I really had to watch my step as I was going down, and my knees were feeling the aches and pains of receiving…

“Let It Go” (Northern Norway and Swedish Lappland – June 29, 2019 to July 14, 2019)

…the ferries returned to the dock, it looked like line 2 was moving first, then line 1. However, lines 6 and 7 didn’t move at all. When line 1 was done loading, the ferry took off without us!…

“Righting Wrongs” (Southern and Fjord Norway – June 16, 2019 to June 29, 2019)

This wasn’t what the forecast had called for so I decided to wait out the squall. In the mean time, I was putting on waterproof pants and hiking boots inside the car (not a lot of room mind you)…

“Completing Experiences” (Denmark and Sweden – June 12, 2019 to June 16, 2019 and July 26, 2019 to August 3, 2019)

But with us apparently not going to be going onto this particular ferry, I was now wondering if we had made a mistake in relying on ferries as clearly we weren’t going to make it to Frederiksborg…

“Date Day” (Sycamore Canyon Falls – June 1, 2019)

Actually, the scrambling up to the top of the falls wasn’t very trivial as I had to grip some sloping hard-rock surfaces that could easily be difficult to get a grip, especially if wet…

“The Gathering” (Sturtevant Falls – May 27, 2019)

It didn’t even matter that some of them had the forest service pass on their dashboards or hanging from their rear-view mirror. The cops also got them for parking over the traffic lines so trying…

“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…

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…

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…

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…
