Beautiful

I really enjoyed reading your story about your trip to Russian Gulch waterfall. I grew up in Mendocino and believe it or not I didn’t even know this waterfall existed until I was about 42 and had gone back to Mendocino as a visitor and overheard someone talking about this waterfall. WOW!! I also took […]

Kornsa Waterfall

Maybe a bit off topic, but during one of my visits to Iceland October 2022 I took a detour from the ring road to explore the Vatnsdalur valley where I a.o. passed mentioned waterfall. An interesting story behind the Kornsa estate, is that a major part of the book “Burial rites” by Australian author Hannah […]

Pacheco creek

Both left and right forks have very active waterfalls after heavy rains, but require getting feet wet 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Helicopter

Back in the 70’s, when I first considered going to these falls, I heard there was a helicopter you could take to save most of the elevation gain/loss. Not sure if that option is still available. 1 CommentOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Typo?

Cycone Monica. Should that have an “l” in cyclone? 1 CommentOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Falls

I just want to warn people not to try to climb these falls I watched a good friend fall to his death on 12/26/1976. He will always be missed he was only 24 years old. 1 CommentOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

History

I am deeply interested in the history, rather the pre-history, of Cumberland Falls, particularly the story of the falls and surrounding area before, during, and after its purchase by Coleman DuPont. His purchase of the land, we are told, precluded the building of an upriver dam. You see, there exists a documented history and a […]

Do NOT Try To See These Falls from the Kalihiwai River Bridge

I saw in a Facebook post that you are able to see at least one of these falls from the Kalihiwai River Bridge, and that you are able to park nearby and walk down to the bridge. First, there is no parking some 300 yards east of the Kalihiwai Bridge as the Facebook post says, […]

Comparison

When I first saw this waterfall, I immediately thought of Burney Falls in California. The seepage or maybe weepage was quite similar. Shiraito Falls is much wider. 1 CommentOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Hipuapua Falls

The waterfall does not seem as high from up close as it does from a distance. Check out this video: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CU12fo9IqJw/?utm_medium=copy_link 1 CommentOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Deschutes River run

Dunno if you’re into whitewater rafting, but there’s a short trip between Dillon Falls (unrunnable, at least commercially) and Lava Island downstream (ditto). There’s a nice Class III rapid, Big Eddy, in the middle. The run takes only about an hour (IIRC), and you can sign up (again IIRC) with an outfitter at the nearby […]

Questions about Angel Falls Have Arisen

It seems hard to imagine but the World Waterfall Database, which I think is a serious list, has placed Angel Falls BEHIND Tugela Falls for height, based on the original 1949 measure being faulty and counting the small waterfall below as not contiguous enough. Apparently, nobody has done a recent measurement and so the challenged […]

Black Swift Falls

I have a few photos of Black Swift Falls, taken Feb 24, 2017. We were staying at Ragged Point Inn, and Highway 1 was closed north of there. I discovered the falls just by walking around. That was a wet winter, so the falls were flowing real well. 1 CommentOnly logged in users can post […]

Heggeheimsfossen

I really liked this waterfall each of the 6 times I passed it. It is extremely attractive from the beginning of the Vatedalen, but was a bit disappointing closer up, since the road almost touches it and you get a lot of foreshortening as you pass it. Impressive at a distance! 0 CommentsOnly logged in […]

Tjotafossen

I had raved about Tjotafossen in your previous format, but I don’t think it appeared anew. I think it is far and away the finest waterfall in the area, dropping 2600 feet from the glacier. I returned to see it 6 more times, and found it to be powerful and delicate at the same time. […]

Almost Unseen, The Skarvefossen

As you pass Lake Granvin and the bridge over Skervetsfossen between those rugged cliffs, it is easy not to notice Skarvefossen, rather further away, but a strong, higher, and very powerful waterfall that deserves a closer look than most of us get a chance to do. 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment […]
