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…

Edith Falls (Leilyn)

Edith Falls, which also was known by its Aboriginal name Leilyn, was a series of waterfalls that seemed to us to be really more of a giant swimming hole than waterfall attraction. However, as I say…

Florence Falls

Florence Falls was probably our favorite waterfall in Litchfield National Park. What made this waterfall stand out to Julie and I was its multi-tiered multi-segmented shape with a crocodile-free…

Tolmer Falls

Tolmer Falls was definitely one of the taller waterfalls we encountered while touring Litchfield National Park. However, unlike the other waterfalls we saw in the park, it didn’t seem like access…

Wangi Falls

Wangi Falls (“Wangi” rhymes with “wrong guy”) was an attractive set of dual waterfalls sitting at the far western end of Litchfield National Park. In the state that Julie and I saw the falls…

Tjaetaba Falls

Tjaetaba Falls was an interesting waterfall that seemed to be one of the more obscure ones in Litchfield National Park. We saw this because most of the other waterfalls had dedicated car parks…

Robin Falls

Robin Falls was one of those obscure waterfalls that we weren’t aware of until we were combing through our very useful road atlas during our pre-trip research. When we learned that it was not far)…

“No 4WD Access” (Top End, Australia – June 3, 2006 to June 7, 2006)

The receptionist then told us that they would substitute the Jim Jim Falls/Twin Falls excursion with a trip out to Gunlom Falls. Julie and I knew this was unacceptable since we had just driven there..

Seattle Wedding Itinerary – May 25, 2006 to May 29, 2006

This five-day Memorial Day Weekend itinerary was largely a result of one of Julie’s cousins getting married in their home city of Seattle. Of course, we also saw this as an opportunity to fit in some waterfalling and sightseeing…

Snoqualmie Falls

Snoqualmie Falls is easily the most popular and most visited waterfall in the state of Washington. We believe the adjectives spectacular and powerful should be thrown in there as well…

Twin Falls

Twin Falls seemingly felt like one of those locals only attractions that was charming in its own right, but lacked the notoriety and power of the nearby Snoqualmie Falls. When we first did this…

Wallace Falls

Wallace Falls was a very popular waterfalling excursion as it was well within reach of both Everett and Seattle. It was really a series of three major waterfalls on the Wallace River…

Death Valley Itinerary – March 24, 2006 to March 26, 2006

This itinerary was about our trip to Death Valley for the first time. Although this trip involved a lot of long drives, Julie and I were surprisingly able to accomplish quite a bit in terms of all the sights we wanted to see in Death Valley itself…

“Roughing It In The Desert” (Death Valley – March 24, 2006 to March 26, 2006)

It was too late in terms of the impact the camera made with the ground, but I also had to wipe away all that sand and salt that was suddenly all over the newly-bought expensive device…

Darwin Falls

Darwin Falls epitomized what was perhaps one of the great paradoxes when it comes to waterfalling in California. Sitting within the boundaries of Death Valley National Park, which was known as…

Yosemite Firefall Itinerary – February 24, 2006 to February 26, 2006

This itinerary of our weekend visit to Yosemite National Park was all about catching the firefall as it was one of the few things left that I didn’t try from The Photographer’s Guide to Yosemite by Michael Frye….

“Chasing the Firefall” (Yosemite – February 24, 2006 to February 26, 2006)

Driven by the thought of trying to get that sought-after firefall, my wife and I went on another spontaneous Yosemite trip. I was concerned about my old 1990 Legend making it…

Fiji Itinerary – December 24, 2005 to January 2, 2006

In this itinerary, Julie and I took a tropical vacation during the holiday season between Christmas and New Years in Fiji. Something really quirky about this trip was that we flew out on the evening of Christmas Eve and we landed in Fiji on Boxing Day…

Waibula Falls

Waibula Falls is an attractive waterfall that sits in a Danish-owned plantation in eastern Taveuni. It is the last highlight of the plantation tour which can be arranged…
