Ringedalsfossen and the Trolltunga Waterfalls

Ringedalsfossen (also known as Skjeggedalsfossen) was definitely the most conspicuous waterfall in the Skjeggedal Valley, and it acted as my waterfalling excuse to go on the epic hike to Trolltunga.

Sagfossen and the Rullestad Waterfalls

Sagfossen was a conspicuous waterfall that we spotted while driving the E134 between Skarre and the nearby Langfossen Waterfall. Back when Julie and I first noticed this waterfall, we didn’t…

“Kjeragfossen”

“Kjeragfossen” was pretty much the main waterfall that I associate with the epic hike to the rock wedged between two vertical cliffs known as Kjeragbolten or often just Kjerag. Of the numerous…

Hunnedalen Waterfalls

The point of this Hunnedalen Waterfalls page was to acknowledge the scenic valleys and waterfalls that we encountered on the drive between Sirdal and Dirdal. It pretty much covered the stretch of…

Preikestolen Waterfalls

This Preikestolen Waterfalls page was kind of my waterfalling excuse to talk about the famous and impressive Preikestolen formation. That said, I did spot some noteworthy waterfalls on both the…

Sarpsfossen

Sarpsfossen (also referred to as Sarpefossen in the Norgeskart map) showed itself to us as a frighteningly powerful waterfall on the Glomma River in the city of Sarpsborg. Ordinarily I don’t tend…

Elgafossen (Algafallet)

Elgafossen (or more accurately Elgåfossen in Norwegian and Älgafallet in Swedish) was a shared waterfall between Norway and Sweden. In fact, its watercourse on a tributary of the Enningdalsälven…

Ramhultafallet

Ramhultafallet was a wide and multi-tiered waterfall that spilled a cumulative 64m over perhaps three main drops before dumping right into the Lake Lygnern. That lakeside location alone compelled…

Silverfallet

Silverfallet was one of two waterfalls of the same name that we visited in Sweden during our epic Scandinavia Trip in the Summer of 2019. This waterfall sat near the town of Skövde between…

Stalpet

The Stalpet Waterfall (which can also be called just “Stalpet”) was our introduction to waterfalling in Sweden. It was the first waterfall that we visited on our epic trip throughout Scandinavia…

“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…
