Beehive Falls

Beehive Falls was another one of the “minor” waterfalls within the Grampians National Park boundary where I happened to see it in two different personalities within a 24 hour period. Like with…

Clematis Falls

Clematis Falls was what I considered to be one of the “minor” waterfalls of the Grampians National Park. As opposed to the “major” waterfalls in the park which would have pretty reliable flow…

“Yanada” (South Australia and Victoria – November 8, 2017 to November 23, 2017)

Just when Julie was about to get into the car after using the restrooms here, she smelled something burning. At first, I thought it was something with the car. But she said it was more like a fire…

Summer Road Trip of the Pacific Northwest – July 27, 2017 to August 20, 2017

With Summer in full swing and a daughter that was growing and learning quickly (though out-of-school for nearly three months), we figured that we needed to do a road trip to experience the world in ways that are simply not possible…

Yellowstone Highlights

Even though this is a waterfalls website, we recognize that there are many highlights in Yellowstone National Park (both involving and not involving waterfalls). So we’ve come up with this page to pay homage to some of the highlights that we…

Pacific Northwest Highlights

Even though this is a waterfalls website, we recognize that there are many highlights in the Pacific Northwest (both involving and not involving waterfalls). So we’ve come up with this page to pay homage to some of the highlights that we…

Tamanawas Falls

Tamanawas Falls was one of the more pleasing waterfalls to see as it featured a classic rectangular shape said to drop 100ft with a width of about 40ft (though I’ve seen a height figure…

Upper McCord Creek Falls

The Upper McCord Creek Falls was an attractive double-barreled waterfall said to have a height of about 64ft. As you can see from the photo at the top of this page, I happened to see this falls…

Munson Creek Falls

Munson Creek Falls was probably most significant waterfall in the vicinity of the Oregon Coast that we’ve encountered. Tumbling over three visible tiers, it was said to have a cumulative…

“Total Eclipse Of The Trip” (Portland and the Oregon Coast – August 16, 2017 to August 20, 2017)

It was a bit of a strange experience being on this bridge looking at the sign periodically go dark then the letters outlining in green before sparkling in the font while cars were whizzing by…

Fall Creek Falls

Fall Creek Falls (I’ve also seen it referred to as Falls Creek Falls) was one of the more scenically located waterfalls we’ve come across as it spilled over 60ft right into the Snake River…

Cave Falls

Cave Falls was an impressively wide waterfall spanning 250ft across the Falls River well downstream from its confluence with the Bechler River. Even though it was said to be only 20ft tall…

Idaho Falls

Idaho Falls was one of those waterfalls that not only pertained to the name of the waterfall, but it was also the name of the city in which it sat at its heart. In our experience, we’ve seen many…

“Cascade Creek Falls”

“Cascade Creek Falls” was a name I made up for this waterfall (hence the quotes) as it was one that I never expected to see. You see, when I did the the hike to the neighboring Terraced Falls…

Union Falls and Ouzel Pool

Union Falls had to have been my favorite waterfall in Yellowstone National Park besides the powerful Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River. It had been frequently described as the most beautiful…

Crecelius Cascade

Crecelius Cascade was a roadside waterfall that we managed to miss on our first visit to Yellowstone National Park back in June 2004. It consisted of a smaller pair of cascades dropping in…

Woodbine Falls

Woodbine Falls was certainly one of the tallest and most impressive waterfalls that we’ve encountered in the state of Montana outside of Glacier National Park. It was actually geographically…

Natural Bridge Falls

Natural Bridge Falls was probably the most impressive of the natural bridge features that we’ve seen so far, especially since it was also a legitimate waterfall attraction as you can see in the…

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…

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…
