Fuipisia Falls

Fuipisia Falls (or Fuipisia Waterfall) was actually a series of two impressive waterfalls on different streams. The first waterfall was partially concealed so viewing it was kind of awkward…

Sopoaga Falls

Sopoaga Falls (I’ve also seen it called Sopo’aga Waterfall) was another roadside waterfall on the Samoan island of ‘Upolu. Similar with the Papapapaitai Falls, we didn’t need to exert ourselves…

Togitogiga Waterfall

The Togitogiga Waterfall (or Togitogiga Falls) was an attractive dual-tiered waterfall that seemed like an ideal spot to cool off from the stifling humidity of a place like Samoa…

Papapapaitai Falls

Papapapaitai Falls (I’ve also seen it referred to as Papapapaitai Waterfall as well as Papapapai-tai Falls or Papapapai-Uta Falls) was probably the easiest of the Samoan waterfalls that we…

“Circles” (Samoa – November 9, 2019 to November 18, 2019)

However, some kids came out of a house and demanded money pretty aggressively. The oldest asked that we pay 10 Tala for taking pictures (seemed like she was making it up as she went), and we did…

The Epic Scandinavia Trip Itinerary – June 12, 2019 to August 3, 2019

The Scandinavia Trip Itinerary page details our epic two-month family trip in the Summer covering almost all of Norway, Sweden, and the best of Denmark…

“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)…

Angel Falls and Devils Slide

Angel Falls and Devils Slide were a pair of waterfalls on Willow Creek that spilled into the popular play areas on the north shore of Bass Lake. Of the two named waterfalls on Willow Creek…

Corlieu Falls and Red Rock Falls

Corlieu Falls and Red Rock Falls were a couple of waterfalls on Lewis Creek, which sat between the southern boundary of Yosemite National Park and Oakhurst. I looked upon these waterfalls as an…

“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…

Danska Fall

Danska Fall (I’ve also seen it called Danska Fallen and Danska Fallet) turned out to be the last waterfall we visited on our epic 2019 Scandinavian Trip. It turned out to sit in one of Halland…

Forsakar

The Forsakar Waterfall was the southernmost of the waterfalls that we encountered in Sweden, which alone kind of made it stand out to us as we didn’t expect any waterfalls this far south in the…

Gloppefossen

Gloppefossen was one of the highest permanent waterfalls (Reiårsfossen could be taller) in the Setesdal Valley with a cumulative drop of around 120m (or up to 140m if I include some of the cascades…

Laegdafossen and the Naeroyfjorden and Aurlandsfjorden Waterfalls

Laegdafossen (or more accurately Lægdafossen) was perhaps the most compelling waterfall that we encountered while doing the cruise between Flåm and Gudvangen. The falls had a cumulative drop of 580…

Bordalsgjelet

Bordalsgjelet (the “Bordal Gorge”; pronounced “BOR-dahls-yell-uh”) was what I consider to be kind of as close to an inside-the-gorge experience as I got in Norway. Typically, we explored such…

Sognefjell Waterfalls

The Sognefjell Waterfalls page is my waterfalling excuse to talk about the popular Sognefjellet National Tourist Route (Sognefjellsvegen) that cut right through the heart of Jotunheimen…

Sjurhaugfossen

Sjurhaugfossen was a roadside waterfall flowing on the Lærdalselvi River nestled deep in a gorge. According to the Norgeskart map, the falls could be as little as 5m tall or if you count…
