Combined Hermit-Sturtevant hike

You don’t need to get all the way up and down to combine Hermit and Sturtevant Falls hikes into one. First Water is connected with Robert’s Camp by a trail going along the creek and cabins. Although be ready to get wet in the high water season because there are some creek crossings and they […]

What creates the wind at the bottom of a waterfall?

Is it due to the water moving air out of the way as it falls, or is it just due to the force of impact when water hits the bottom? How can you predict how much wind a certain waterfall will produce? 1 CommentOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign […]

Went April 11, 2011

Was only flowing at about 20 percent but was still amazing and it is a lot bigger when u see other people standing on the other side. It really puts the size of it in perspective. 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Please help identify waterfall

Please help my family identify this waterfall! My Great Uncle Jerry was a fighter pilot in WWII and he loved to take photos. This is one of his photographs. I have always been drawn to this photo and have not been able to identify the location. My Great Uncle Jerry was shot down in Northern […]

Highway 39 is reopened

Caltrans has reopened the highway after being closed for nearly 10 years due to extensive fire damage (Curve Fire) and then the 2005 flooding. Access to Lewis Falls is difficult due to the inability for volunteers to get in to the area to maintain the trail leading to the falls. In that video you can […]

King George Falls is the Best

King George Falls in the North Kimberley between December and June is easily Australia’s most spectacular waterfall. With twin drops of over 100m it is enormous. It is like 2 Jim Jim Falls together. I’ve seen both and it is no contest. 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign […]

Only Seen One…

I think you have a wonderfull site, and as a New Zealander I really liked to see your choices for our top 10. Alas I have only seen one during my travels and that was the Huka Falls. Sadly some people lacking in intelligence thought they could go swimming. The corpses were found some days […]

Face of big cat (panther?) in waterfall

It’s probably impossible to ever find out, but if you can’t help me with this, no one can… When I was a little girl, my parents once watched a movie in which suddenly the face of a big cat appears in a waterfall. This gave me my one and only nightmare till now. It must […]

Stuart William Walker

Sadly I only have bad news on the falls. When I was a kid of eleven back in 1972, my best friend Stuart Walker was trying to climb down at Morialta Falls, he fell and died instantly. Stuart is buried at Athelstone Cemtetery in Adelaide, South Australia. 2 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a […]

Getting Lost

I enjoyed watching the waterfall, though there was not much water on the day I went there. It took me almost four hours to drive there from Sydney, which was not a good experience on that day. The reason could be that I possibly followed the wrong route I knew from the map attached above. […]

Native East Tennesseean

This is not waterfall-specific, but I am pretty sure that the Grand Canyon is not even close to the most-visited US National Park. Unless things have changed, that would be the Great Smoky Mountains NP, which straddles the TN/NC border and is about 45 minutes from my house. It has more than twice as many […]

Trail Canyon 1/20/11

Just hiked to the falls! It was so beautiful. It was hard to follow the trail, lots of boulder hopping and crossing of the creek. If you’re looking to stay on the trail you need to be looking up to the left for barbed wire and that’s how you know when the trail verges up […]

Wigmore’s Waterfall after moderate walk

Take the circle bus from downtown Rarotonga and get off near the waterfall. Walk up the road to the interior and it is a modest sized waterfall where visitors can swim below it. We have seen horses walking on this road and banana fields. If humid weather, can be lots of mosquitos. Worth the visit. […]

Nepal

There are many waterfalls in Nepal. I’m shocked that none them are mentioned here. There are more than 2 waterfalls measuring more than 800m and one more than 900m. If you include them, then your collection would be a complete collection of world tallest waterfalls. 1 CommentOnly logged in users can post a comment Please […]

Forest Falls

How come Forest Falls wasn’t included? While it is seasonal, it is very easy to view. You take Highway 38 out of Redlands. 15 miles past Redlands the highway makes a sharp left – at that point there is a road that goes straight back to Forest Home, a small community of homes and religious […]

Stopping for Cleve Garth Falls

I am a bus driver on the Wilmot Pass Road and I always stop to let people get a photo of this waterfall. 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Bridalveil Fall – 1957

I was 15 and fell in love with Yosemite. Bridal Veil Falls was my first waterfall. I was so enthralled I left my new Brownie Kodak sitting on a rock when I left. I have been back many times since, and have camped at the top. Walked from Glacier point to Happy Isles with my […]
