Upper Calf Creek Falls

Upper Calf Creek Falls is a little known 88ft waterfall that exist upstream from the wildly popular Lower Calf Creek Falls. The big reason why this waterfall is hidden in obscurity is…

“Mothers Day in September” (Grand Staircase National Monument, Utah – September 15, 2006 to September 17, 2006)

With simultaneously growing anticipation and doubt, mom and I took the apparent advice from the pair of hikers we talked to and scrambled down the slickrock and into the bushy depths of Calf Creek…

Australia Outback Road Trip Itinerary – June 1, 2006 to June 23, 2006

This itinerary covers our very first trip to Australia, which focused on two of the country’s largest states – the Northern Territory and Western Australia. I guess you could call this the stereotypical Outback Trip because we did indeed visit some of the country’s iconic…

Hovea Falls and National Park Falls

Hovea Falls and National Park Falls were the two main waterfall attractions in the John Forrest National Park in the eastern suburbs of Perth. Hovea Falls was a sliding type waterfall…

Fernhook Falls

Fernhook Falls was supposed to be a very wide waterfall, which you might get a sense of from looking at the span of the road bridge in the photos on this page. Instead, we were only able to see…

Beedelup Falls

Beedelup Falls was perhaps the one waterfall in the southwest of Australia where we saw somewhat satisfactory flow during our June 2006 visit to the area. Perhaps the main reason for its revival…

Lane-Poole Falls

When Julie and I think of Lane-Poole Falls, what comes to mind was a very relaxing experience punctuated with tall karri trees, a relatively easy hike, and a pleasant 10m waterfall at the end of…

Quinninup Falls

Quinninup Falls was an ocean-facing 10m waterfall tumbling onto a sandy beach near the Cape-to-Cape Trail in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. As you can see from the photos on this page…

“A Roo’d Encounter” (Perth, Margaret River, and Albany, WA, Australia – June 17, 2006 to June 22, 2006)

While my thoughts were on the task ahead as we had planned to see at least three waterfalls around the city’s suburbs, I increased the cruise control to 100km/h. Suddenly…

Lesmurdie Falls

Lesmurdie Falls was probably the closest waterfall that we saw to the city of Perth. Actually, it was in one of the more immediate outskirts of the city, and we had a little bit of trouble finding…

Serpentine Falls

Serpentine Falls was an interesting twisting waterfall that seemed to be true to its name. Of all the waterfalls in the greater Perth area (including its suburbs), this one seemed to have…

Fortescue Falls

Fortescue Falls seemed to Julie and I to be a tropical oasis in the middle of the remote and unforgiving desert-like Pilbara Region. What made this oasis so picturesque in our minds was the…

Joffre Falls

Joffre Falls was an attractively tall seasonal waterfall tumbling into a natural amphitheater at the head of the red-cliffed Joffre Gorge. Like the other waterfalls of Karijini National Park…

Kalamina Falls

Kalamina Falls was a tiny seasonal waterfall sitting at the head of the Kalamina Gorge in Karijini National park. I recalled that the falls itself tok us only a brief 5-minute walk from the car…

“Something in the Middle of Nothing” (North of Western Australia – June 10, 2006 to June 16, 2006)

Still, we didn’t know what it was nor did we know if it was life threatening. So once we got into the visitor center, Julie asked the Aboriginal woman behind the cashier if she had ever seen…

Mitchell Falls

Mitchell Falls was a very beautiful four-tiered waterfall that we thought truly embodied the beauty and rugged character of the Australian Outback in the remote Kimberley Region of Western Australia..

King George Falls

King George Falls was a very remote dual waterfall that we happened to see as part of the larger Mitchell Falls Explorer day tour. We made it a point to see this waterfall given the lure of its…

“The Bungle Bungle Bumble” (Kununurra, WA, Australia – June 8, 2006 to June 9, 2006)

As the helicopter landed, Julie and I gave each other a very confused and puzzled look. We weren’t sure what had happened, but the sinking feeling of being ripped off and not being able to see…

Twin Falls

Twin Falls was another gorgeous series of waterfalls that tumbled about 180m from its escarpment into the shadowy depths below. Contrasting the neighboring Jim Jim Falls, this waterfall didn’t…

Double Falls

Double Falls was a bit of a waterfall surprise for us as it ended up being included as part of our air tour over both Twin Falls. It was an attractive two-tiered waterfall that drained into the…
