Fur seals at Ohau falls confirmed

I have copied a web address below as proof the fur seal pups do visit the pools at the base of Ohau falls. I was surfing the net and came across this site with images showing the pups at the falls. I intend to go and visit Ohau Falls myself and hopefully get some great […]

The Mission

The story in the movie The Mission takes place in the region of Iguacu Falls which border on Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. The beginning of the movie shows close-ups of the falls, which were touted by President Teddy Roosevelt to be the 8th Natural Wonder of the World…My favorite place to visit! 0 CommentsOnly logged […]

Great Hike (Marble Falls)

I went with a group of young boy scouts on this hike in mid-November. It was a cool dry day, so the hike was much easier than expected. Not as steep as anticipated either. But, 3.9 miles each way left me sore for the next couple of days. The river was much lower than shown […]

Niagara Falls Canada

Peak numbers of visitors occur in the summertime, when Niagara Falls are both a daytime and evening attraction. The oldest and best known tourist attraction at Niagara Falls is the Maid of the Mist boat cruise, named for an ancient Ongiara Indian mythical character, which has carried passengers into the rapids immediately below the Falls […]

Almost to Moul Falls

We went almost all the way to the falls, but after the small cascade it seemed like nothing more would be happening. That was a mistake! 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Not Much Better in Early August (Hamilton Falls)

I was there in early August a few years ago. Not much better then. But a hike in the bush is always nice. 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Death Valley National Park

I along with my family have been to Death Valley National Park in Summer. It was too hot that time and completely dry. We didn’t find any waterfall over there. I guess we missed out on the beautiful scene and well as your toad floating in ponds (kidding). Apart from this scenery we managed to […]

Amazing waterfall

Angel Falls is one of the most extreme places which is worth to seeing. Having been there with my friends, we were mesmerized with its beauty! It was like dreaming. My friends & I were so much involved in the beauty that we didn’t speak for hours. It was an unforgettable and breathtaking experience. 0 […]

Trail Canyon Falls – 10/30/2010 Couldn’t get to it

We tried driving up from Big Tujunga Drive, but Trail Canyon is still closed from fire damage. Where Big Tujunga meets Angeles Forest Rd., you can only go north — Angeles Forest Rd. in the direction of Pasadena is still closed. By Aliso Park (more north on Angeles Forest Rd.) the Pacific Crest Trail is […]

Three Sisters Waterfall – San Diego, CA

I was so surprised not to see the Three Sisters Waterfall in Descanso, CA (San Diego County) on your list & then remembered it’s a fairly well kept secret. The falls are in the middle of the Cleveland National Forest down 12 miles of dirt road. (Exact directions are easy enough to find online.) But […]

Paradise on earth

I have been to this place along with my parents on 19 Sep 10. I have never seen such a beautiful and cool place any where. I had been at J&K, Himachal and Ooty, but it is exceptionally different from others. The local population is as cool as the environment. A little government attention needed […]

I slipped and fell from Grizzly Falls 34 years ago. I have been a quadriplegic since. Please, use caution when visiting. Don’t do something stupid. 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Milford track guide

This is the most beautiful spot I ever had. It has very unique features in it such as the flora and the fauna, bird life, mountains, rivers etc. High precaution must be taken as it is said that precaution is better than cure. Visiting Milford Track, Routeburn Track, Kepler Track, Greenstone Track, Capels Track, Heaphy […]

What waterfalls allow you to walk or climb behind them?

I’ve heard of only a handful of these, such as Dry Falls in Georgia, but I know you would have much more experience in the matter. My husband and I also love waterfalls, and we hope to find several, particularly in North America, that we can climb behind for a unique vantage point. 1 CommentOnly […]

Stalheimsfossen – Thanks

I took a picture from Stalheim Hotel’s terrace when I was 11 and it looks identical to yours. I didn’t actually remember where in Norway I took it as we went to so many places but i was trying to find out in case I wanted to revisit one day! So thanks for that! 0 […]

Mt Damper – Are there bigger “single drop” waterfalls in New Zealand?

Regarding the Mt Damper Falls in New Zealand, Wairere is obviously taller but the locals in Taranaki claim Mt Damper to be the “longest single drop”. Are there bigger “single drop” waterfalls in New Zealand? I live on the farm at Mt Damper, if people ask me I like to know what I’m talking about […]

Hydnefossen – Do the trail!

We were at Hydnefossen last July 2010 and did the trail with a guide to the Veslehorn. It was a beautiful trip and we would encourage everyone to do that. 0 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Collision Damage Waiver – Do You Need It?

I am entering this rather late as I have mainly been following Johnnys NZ travels. In the UK there are currently 3 credit cards that do not impose a foreign transaction loading (typically 2.75%). We use one or more of these during our visits to NZ. It makes quite a saving. Perhaps there are none […]
