Beautiful Spot But Can Be Deadly (Maruia Falls)

I have been to these falls, and witnessed some kayakers going over the falls, which I thought was fool-hardy, but they seemed to do it just fine. It is a beautiful spot. However, just last weekend in the news a man died there after climbing over the safety barriers and then slipped into the water. […]

Sacred Falls Mother’s Day 1999

On this beautiful Hawaiian Spring Day some friends and I hiked the short trail to the base of the waterfall where we began swimming. The water was cold and refreshing but after about a half an hour we all decided that even though the view was spectacular and the pool was amazing it was time […]

Sacred Falls 1980

I am 52 to years old, and I still get emotional seeing pictures and videos of Sacred Falls. I was stationed on Oahu between 1979 and 1981, while in the Navy. When I went to Scared Falls with my friends, I thought the hike was a bit of a hassle until I started getting closer […]

Hiking with kids…… (@ Middle Fork Tule River Falls)

This hike is worth it!! Although this hike is only about 30 min. The rocks are really slick and slippery. After climbing down off the trail onto the rocks you have to take off your shoes otherwise you have absolutely no traction. Even though we hiked down with our 5 and 7 year old kids […]

The Ring starring Naomi Watts

There’s a brief scene with a car driving across a bridge. Beneath it is a waterfall. Does anybody know which waterfall it is? It is at 54 minutes into the movie.

Blue Pool

Aloha, I live on Ulaino Rd. not far from the falls. I have been turning people around from visiting the falls and helping the landowner (whose land you must cross to get there) for a year now. There are many reasons we want visitors to stay away and most people on the road are in […]

Oahu and Waimea Falls

I went to Oahu twice on the Navy’s dime while attached to the U.S.S. Alabama submarine. The first time, I only had 4 hrs. to play. The second time, in 1987, I had nearly a whole day of “liberty” (off time), so I rented a Jeep and took some buddies on a tour of the […]

Old military brat (Kapena Falls)

Once a great hangout for teens and similar airheads! Jumping feet first into murky, clouded water was very risky. Once parked my car on the Pali shoulder to take a plunge. Gone 20-minutes. Returned to my car that had been broken into. Billfold stolen. Haven’t returned since 1967!!

Mooney Falls, Havasu Falls, Rock Falls AZ

Mooney Falls, Rock Falls, and Havasu Falls were amazing! They’re in the Grand Canyon area and well worth it. Rock Falls you can hike around the back of the falls and dive out or dive 30 feet from the top. The water is crystal clear and warm

A True Odyssey (to a mysterious waterfall)

In the summer of 1989 I was preparing to leave Hawaii after 5 years of service. A CLOSE friend and I took a farewell trip to Kauai. As part of the package I paid for an inclusion that was rather hefty in cost. After an incredible one hour helicopter tour of the entire island we […]

Not a lyrebird

Hey Johnny, that’s actually a bush turkey. Very common to the area. Lyrebirds tend to be a little more rare

What would cause a mid ocean waterfall?

Been trying to look around for information. Though seems there isn’t any being there is no precedent for it. But under what kind of conditions would have to happen to form a waterfall in the ocean. Can be a few miles from land or middle? Just simply curious about it.

Quite a Hike! (Nojoqui Falls)

We arrived at the park that is near these falls and were told that there is a ten minute walk. But it’s a ten minute walk FROM the ENTRANCE. Actually one could drive up to where the camping areas are and find it quicker. We arrived when the sun was setting. The park closes at […]

Aug 12, 2011- Trail Canyon Falls still not open

Still not open from the fire 2 years ago…

Burgess Falls

This photo is from a negative that’s at least 45 years old. I ran across it in my parents’ house. I think it may have been taken in Mexico in 1963, but I’m not sure, and I’ve looked at images of waterfalls there and not seen anything like this. I’d appreciate any information about it. […]

God’s Wonders of the World

I lived in Iceland for 1yr and loved every minute of the day I spent there. The locals that live there are the friendliest people around. They have the most beautiful waterfalls in the world. It’s nothing like if you have to go there to see it and feel the power of the water. If […]

Cedar Creek Falls Closed

Cedar Creek is currently closed….Sad really, beautiful falls. This was a tough hike but well worth the reward. ** A teenager died falling from one of the tiers**

Mountaintop Waterfalls

I would like to know how enough water accumulates at the top of a mountaintop to cause a plunging waterfall.

Translvania County, Brevard, NC continued

The Eastatoee is on private property and Craig Miller can give you a personal tour. The Twin Falls was formerly private property owned by Bud Hinkle which has just been bought by a Conservation Group. You now can go but you need a guide to get you back there. This waterfall is called Twin Falls […]

More Waterfalls from Brevard NC, Transylvania County

Again I’m still amazed that I get to be the first one ever to share these with you. I’m uploading the ten waterfalls I saw today. Craig Miller will give you a personal tour of privately owned waterfalls. One of the 276 in one single county. I’m so happy to recommend him… Please mention that […]
