Gullfoss

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! […]

“Lost”

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 […]

Nils Foshaug (Målselvfossen)

Malselvfossen is the most beautiful place on earth. I spent time there with a local expert named Nils Foshaug. His knowledge of the area was excellent, and he made the history of this special part of northern Norway come alive.

My Two Cents

I appreciate a broad rather than narrow definition of a waterfall. Bryan and I have been taken to task by several somewhat indignant members of the waterfall community at large for having a broad definition of what defines a waterfall. Indeed, one gentleman rather snidely insinuated that our datum contains “all” waterfalls, including those that […]

Snoqualmie Falls

Hi, I went to Seattle during 2002 along with my wife to visit my son working for Tata Consultancy Services, at Seattle. I was 58 years old during my visit. I had the opportunity to visit the Snoqualmie Falls. I felt very enchanted and happy. After reading this article, I feel like visiting US again […]

My Hike to Vernal Falls

I had alot of fun in Yosemite. I hiked to the top of Nevada and Vernal Falls (just to tell you; I am 10 so it was alot [of hiking] lol). I got soaked on the mist trail because Vernal Falls was raging. While my family was walking up to Nevada Falls, we had a […]

More on Grongstadfossen

I live in Høylandet and find it interesting that you added Grongstadfossen on your website. I’m sorry that you didn’t know this when you visited the place, but there’s a better lookout place where you can see the whole waterfall from a much closer place. The waterfall was also important during the industrialization because it […]

Multnomah Falls

I haven’t been to many falls, but one of my favorites is Multnomah Falls in Oregon. It is on the Columbia River in the Columbia River Gorge area, which is about 40 to 50 minutes east of Portland. There are also several other waterfalls along that area that are very nice to see and hike […]
