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…

“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…

“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…

Top 10 Switzerland Waterfalls

Julie and I had to really work to put out a list of Top 10 Best Switzerland Waterfalls List because of the concentration of some of Europe’s finest waterfalls all within the famous Swiss Alps. While we’ve done a somewhat dedicated trip followed…

Top 10 Taiwan Waterfalls

It’s not easy to put together a Top 10 Best Taiwan Waterfalls List because it’s completely subjective and limited to each person’s experience with the mentioned waterfalls. And in the case of this tiny island republic of China…

Top 10 India Waterfalls

Although we had to really scrap to come up with this list of Top 10 Best India Waterfalls, it involved a fair sampling of the Subcontinent that not many foreign visits get to experience. And when it comes to waterfalling in this region, it doesn’t get…

Top 10 Thailand Waterfalls

It took us a while to realize that we had enough of a collection of Thailand Waterfalls to come up with our list of ten favorites from here. But when we finally had some time to reflect on some of our past travels, Julie and I still have fond memories…

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…
