Retired Medical Missionary

I have been twice to Iguassu and can say without a doubt it is the most beautiful and exciting Falls to visit that I have ever seen. It is easily accessible by place to the City of Foz do Iquassu and can be viewed from several vantage points…my favorite was when we went up river […]


We visited Glymur last summer, with our two teenage daughters. After a beautiful but challenging hike, we got tired of listening to older daughter’s complaining. We saw the falls, but didn’t make it to the top of the falls. We’re going back this summer, without kids, and WILL make it to the top. Amazing beauty.

Been There A Couple Of Times…

That’s a wonderful collection of photos of the Niagara Falls. Been there a couple of times. Can’t help but be in awe of the falls – especially as seen from the “Maid of the Mist” Also the American Falls up close is awesome. It however does get really crowded during the holidays.

Natural State

I think it is a crime that they have not kept the falls in a more natural state. The falls are an amazing sight, no doubt, but it is too bad they have built so many hotels, casinos and other structures around this natural wonder.

Broken Back

My boyfriend was hiking with several of his friends in November 1975. The water at that time was deep and the waterfall was flowing. He went to jump over the falls and lost his footing on the moss and went down the falls facing outward. He landed face down in the water and broke both […]


I visited Zimbabwe prior to recent troubles, staying at the Elephant Hills Intercontinental. And from the roof top bar, you could see the ‘Smoke that Thunders’ away in the distance. Truly awesome! But nothing prepares you for the up close and personal experience of standing next to its intense natural power. We now have a […]

Gullfoss was one of the most beautiful things that I have ever experienced in my life. This shows that nature is a very powerful source. I would consider the waterfalls in Iceland to be one of the greatest things to witness in the world today. NOT only the waterfalls but the country of Iceland itself.

Pywiack Cascade hiking accident fatal to Tahoe doctor

There were two missing hikers in Yosemite one morning in 1970 and the rangers requested several of the more or less permanent rock climbers in Camp 4 to participate in search parties. My party was sent down a very steep, very brushy gully from the vicinity of the Tioga Road to the base of Pywiack […]

Read That Fine Print Before Signing!

I am going through something rather similar: MasterRental and Thrifty again. MasterRental has held up to their end of the bargain but Thrifty is practicing fraud in my opinion. I had the car for 24 hours in the Orlando, FL area. They noticed a scratch on the plastic bumper that is a small, barely noticeable […]

CDW Distraction

Thanx for this story. The free CDW is a major attraction of a credit card and I can rent a car for $45 (tax inc) for a weekend (Fri 12pm-Mon12pm) but the CDW is $48, more than doubling the cost. But reading the fine print of the credit card CDW they have lots of scope […]

Missing the Nyastølfoss on your Top 10!

I vistited the Kinso River on the 8th of June 2008 – and it was GREAT! The Nyastølfoss must stand on the list!

Bruised Bums and Tailbones (Waitavala Water Slide)

It is one of the most beautiful places I have been to… Have to agree on the bruised bums and tailbones, I nearly broke my leg coming down the waterslide (I was told to lift my legs up after I went down and my leg got stuck in a hole)… Otherwise, very, very beautiful and […]

1967-1970 Kapena Falls

We used to swim here all the time while living in Hawaii during our teens. Parents were military and it was great fun at the falls. Not far from here, if I remember correctly, was a place called Jackass Ginger which was a place to slide down. I believe it was a half lava tube […]

Worst Place I’ve Found For Mosquitoes

Bring bug spray! Worst place I’ve found for mosquitoes. Easy, short hike, and the waterfalls weren’t bad, but nothing spectacular. We heard hunters shooting close by, so we didn’t stay long.

Sturtevant Falls

This was a pretty cool waterfall. We went in early March and there was plenty of water. It’s a somewhat steep hike down a paved path and then a pretty hike along a nice stream. A great half day adventure from LA.

Wainibau Falls

This was a great waterfall. After a fairly lengthy walk through the jungle on a hot day, we couldn’t have asked for more… If anybody visits this waterfall, make sure you ask the locals to take you to the top of the waterfall… but remember, there’s only one way back down… and that’s to jump! […]


Nice, easy, pretty hike to Manoa Falls. Great for taking photos along the way. Falls was roped off due to rockfall danger, but still well worth the hike. Tallest falls I’ve seen on Oahu. The TV series “Lost” has been filmed along this trail. We came across a TV set, but it was being torn […]
