Slaedufoss (Slæðufoss) was a roadside waterfall just a short scramble away from the unpaved Laugarfellsvegur Road on the waterfall-laced Laugará Stream.
Studlafoss (Studlagil Canyon)
Studlafoss (Stuðlafoss) is a waterfall that greets hikers for the Stuðlagil Canyon trail, which was made possible by the controversial Kárahnjúkar Project.

Benham Falls is the most notable of the class V rapids on the Deschutes River near the city of Bend in the rainshadow of the Cascades in Central Oregon.
