Topo maps are only one method we use to determine a waterfall’s height. This is a frequently used method as we don’t get out as much as we’d like. We also use clinometer/rangefinder combos. Google Earth’s elevation data has recently been shored up, and is getting alarmingly accurate. We’ve never used the rock drop method […]
I am in search of the attached waterfall. I found the picture on the internet and I would love to go there, but I cannot locate where it is. Can you help?
I’ve had the pleasure to see Agua Azul in Chiapas, Mexico and El Chiflon. I think Agua Azul should be in the Top 10 Latin America Waterfalls for sure!
Do you know the name of the waterfalls in this picture? Thanks & Regards Linde
What is the kinetic water called when it falls and hits the bottom? It means the same as loss of energy. We can’t think of the word, can you? It’s like dead water. Thanks, Carol
‘an hour later found us in the only pasture in the Vetti mountains, or so it seemed. We all sat down for a rest and the sun came out. It was lovely. I took off my cycle cape and we set off again. The scenery was : trees, grass, streams. What a change! We followed […]
Had my honeymoon on Taveuni in 1999. My wife and I loved it, all of it: the scuba diving, the people, the Garden Island feel, the short golf course, the hiking, everything, but most of all, we will never forget our hike around Bouma National Park, and the swim into the lower Tavoro falls. It […]
What is the waterfall in the American version of The Vanishing?
This is one of the most beautiful fossen i Norge. Maybe the most beautiful one. I hope you will be able to come back and to watch it better. Charles
Hello, I think the parasite which is very dangerous for the salmons is GYRODACTYLUS SALARIS. If I remember, I will take many pictures of the place and I send them to you, on the summer . Take care all of you and an Happy New Year. Charles
I visited Yosemite National Park on 5th September 1965! I recall the absolute serenity and the breath taking beauty! The scenic beauty and waterfalls were fantastic and I remember laying myself down on one of the rocks at a distance and watching the the fall of water…It was heavenly and I lay there, for how […]
I need to know this for my homework.(GR5)
A long while ago I visited El Sapo Falls, not knowing what was in store for me, it was the most magical place and provided me with memories I will never forget. The Mosquitos were huge however and staying at Ureyen (I think thats how it is spelt) was a fantastic experience too but the […]
Visiting and collecting (bagging) waterfalls has been my hobby over the past 16 years… over 1000 and counting. I enjoy the research (how to get there), the execution (getting there by car and foot), the few momments taking in the beautiful waterfalls and their surroundings and the photo work, recording and scrapbooking involved. Most of […]
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.
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.
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.
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 […]
