Appistoki Falls

Appistoki Falls would forever be associated with huckleberries as far as we were concerned because ever since some locals showed us which plants were naturally growing the berries, Julie and Tahia…

Ousel Falls

Ousel Falls was a pretty popular yet surprisingly naturesque waterfalling excursion within walking distance from the suburban community of Big Sky. For that reason, I’d bet the falls was Big Sky’s…

Grinnell Falls and Salamander Falls

Grinnell Falls and Salamander Falls, while spectacular in their own right, were really only incidental attractions on the epic hike to the Grinnell Glacier, which was rapidly becoming Upper…

“Hidden Lake Cascades”

The “Hidden Lake Cascades” were the informal name pertaining to a set of notable waterfalls that we encountered while hiking the Hidden Lake Trail from the Logan Pass Visitor Center to the Hidden…

Kootenai Falls

Kootenai Falls was an impressively wide and powerful series of waterfalls and rapids on the Kootenai River. As you can see in the photo at the top of this page, pictures really don’t do this place…

“Disconnected Connectedness” (Glacier, Yellowstone, and Grand Tetons – August 5, 2017 to August 15, 2017)

About five minutes later, the large group caught up to me though I wasn’t sure if they rememered me or not because one of the ladies said to me, ‘You’re brave, dude!’…

Moyie Falls

Moyie Falls (not to be confused with the one in Canada) had a lot of potential in terms of it being a must-see waterfall in the panhandle of northern Idaho as it could have been where the…

Spokane Falls

Spokane Falls was a waterfall that had quite a bit going for it despite its urban downtown surroundings, the man-modified characteristic (supporting a pair of hydroelectric diversion dams), and…

Goldstream Falls

Goldstream Falls (also called the Upper Goldstream Falls) was a small waterfall that seemed more suitable for playing (as evidenced by some sand toys left creekside during my visit) as well as…

Sandcut Beach Waterfall

The Sandcut Beach Waterfall was a modestly-sized 10-15ft tall set of waterfalls spilling right onto a pebbly beach before the Sandcut Creek ultimately rejoined the Strait of Juan de Fuca…

“Goldstream Niagara Falls” (Niagara Falls)

“Goldstream Niagara Falls” seemed to us to be a rather obscure waterfall, which was surprising because it was barely a quarter-mile from a busy highway and it was within the Goldstream Provincial…

Shannon Falls

Shannon Falls was one of the tallest waterfalls in British Columbia at 335m tall (said to be the third tallest in the province behind Della Falls and Hunlen Falls) and certainly one of the…

Brandywine Falls

Brandywine Falls was one of the major waterfalls that we encountered while driving the popular Sea to Sky Highway between Vancouver and Whistler, and it was well worth the stop. This very popular…

Alexander Falls

Alexander Falls surprised us with its size and volume as it was a waterfall that we hadn’t planned on visiting until I accidentally came across it while researching other waterfalls along the Sea…

Whatcom Falls

Whatcom Falls was kind of our excuse to break up the drive between Seattle and Vancouver as it was on the way. While the word “whatcom” was said to mean “noisy water” in the local Native American…

Willamette Falls

Willamette Falls turned out to be one of the more frustrating experiences that we’ve had mostly because of its lack of public accessibility. During our visit, the area around the falls remained…

“Inukshuk” (Cascade Range and Pacific Northwest – July 27, 2017 to August 4, 2017)

It wouldn’t be until around 9:35am when we finally got to the customs person, but when she asked what was in our cooler, we revealed that we had eggs, some bread, some kefir, as well as a bag of…

Yosemite Summer With Kids And Grandparents Itinerary – June 15, 2017 to June 18, 2017

The goal of this weekend trip was to expose my nephew to our favorite haunt – Yosemite National Park. Tahia had been here before, but we also wanted to keep both the kids engaged by allowing them to keep each other…
