Strondsfossen

Strondsfossen was the fourth waterfall we encountered while driving through Oddadalen north towards Odda. With so many huge waterfalls here, any wonder why they call the Odda Valley the “Valley of…

Tjornadalsfossen

Tjornadalsfossen (Tjørnadalsfossen; pronounced “TYURD-nuh-dahls-foss-un”) was a waterfall that we almost missed out on for we weren’t really aware of its presence. Indeed, it took an accidental…

Furebergsfossen

Furebergsfossen (I’ve also seen it spelled Furubergsfossen) was a waterfall that presented us quite the challenge to experience despite it being a roadside waterfall. The problem was that…

AEdnafossen and the Folgefonna Waterfalls

AEdnafossen (Ædnafossen [maybe pronounced “ED-nuh-foss-un” and alternatively spelled Ednafossen]) was probably the most scenic of the many waterfalls we noticed while driving alongside Sørfjorden…

Skrikjofossen and Opofossen

Skrikjofossen and Opofossen was a waterfall pair that made their plunge and tumble from the highlands of the Hardanger Plateau towards the South Fjord (Sørfjorden) by the town of Lofthus…

Manafossen

Manafossen (or Månafossen; I think it’s pronounced “MOH-nuh-foss-un”) was definitely our favorite waterfall in Rogaland county, and it was probably the first major waterfall that made us go…

Flakkefossen

Flakkefossen was a seemingly obscure waterfall that I had targeted for a visit given its somewhat close proximity to the southern Norwegian town of Kristiansand. Little did I realize that I would…

Teinefossen

Teinefossen (which I think was pronounced “TYE-nuh-foss-un”) was a waterfall that I stumbled upon while I was seeking out Flakkefossen. Strangely enough, even though I had targeted Flakkefossen on…

Kvasfossen

Kvasfossen (or Kvåsfossen; I think is pronounced “KVOS-foss-un”) was the lone waterfall we saw in the Vest-Agder county during our June 2005 trip. In order to see this waterfall, we took a fairly…

Tengsfossen

Tengsfossen was a waterfall that Julie and I stumbled upon accidentally. We actually mistook this waterfall for a different waterfall called Fotlandsfossen as we actually sought out Fotlandsfossen…

Rjukanfossen and the Waterfalls near Rjukan

Rjukanfossen (I think it’s pronounced “RHEE-oo-kahn-foss-n”) was the main waterfall attraction near the town of Rjukan. When flowing, it would feature a 104m drop right at the head of the Maristu…

Kallefossen

Kallefossen was a conspicuous waterfall presence in the Setesdal Valley’s north-central section near the small town of Valle. Each time we’ve seen this waterfall do its thing, it sloped and tumbled…

Reiarsfossen

Reiarsfossen (or Reiårsfossen; I think is pronounced “RYE-ors-foss-un”) was probably the one seemingly major waterfall that Julie and I targeted and visited while in the Setesdal Valley (Setesdalen)..

“Regrets” (Southern Norway – June 21, 2005 to June 23, 2005)

It was almost 6pm when we finally arrived at the visitor center at the mouth of Lysefjorden. From my travel research, I knew this fjord featured the famous Preikestolen and Kjerag…

Kings Canyon and Sequoia Memorial Day Weekend Itinerary – May 27, 2005 to May 30, 2005

This itinerary of Kings Canyon National Park, Sequoia National Park, and Sequoia National Forest took place over a Memorial Day Weekend. I was accompanied by my Mom and Dad while Julie stayed at home to see friends…

Boulder Creek Falls

Boulder Creek Falls is an interesting roadside waterfall off Hwy 190 between Springville and Ponderosa. It cascades besides the road before going underneath it as it continues…

“Marmots and Ticks” (Mineral King, CA – May 28, 2005)

My dad guarded the car as he was armed with a trekking pole. He was determined not to let the radiator-hose-eating marmots underneath the vehicle and possibly disable the car…

Marble Falls

Marble Falls actually consists of several cascades both upstream and downstream from the main falls itself. I suspect the waterfall got its name because it seemed to be in the presence of rocks…

Black Wolf Falls

Black Wolf Falls is a conspicuous presence as you leave the Silver City and head into Mineral King Valley. Getting here on the long, narrow, and winding Mineral King Road…

“Mineral King Falls”

“Mineral King Falls” is an unofficial name for this tall but unnamed waterfall that you can see right off the unpaved Mineral King Road. Unfortunately, there aren’t…
