Chantry Flats to Stuartevant Falls – Lots of stories and photo ops

Chantry Flats to Stuartevant Falls for years (try, over a fifty year time frame) was a favorite hike of ours. Often two or three times per week by either of the two low-end approaches; occasionally from Wilson parking lot or even Red Box. Weekdays have always been the best. Up past the falls into Winter […]

Long time visitor (Sturtevant Falls)

I grew up in El Monte Ca during a time when the city was spending a goodly amount of money on the parks service basically having all the parks staffed daily during the summer by college student whose main job was to organize activities for us kids. I lived by Fletcher park….we called ourselves the […]


My dad and I hiked these trails many times in the 1940s 1950s. We were told the Indians pronounced it I Ill- e – lu- wan- née. The trail from Happy Isles all around the three falls is breathtaking. Anyway, I was 7 years old the first time we hiked these trails. Adults complain about […]

Gene and Jody Primoff in Canaima, 1978

In 1978 we visited Canaima and stayed near the lagoon. On the way there,our airplane routed us past Angel Falls and we got a good look at the incredible sight. Soon after,we landed near the camp site. We ate our good meals outside under some trees. We spent a lot of time walking on trails […]

It is a wonderful explanation. I was searching for various videos and materials and none satisfies. Your way of explanation is awesome and easily understandable. It would really help me to pass on this information to my child. Thanks a ton

New Improvements at Agnes Falls proving very popular

Officially opened in October 2014 the new toilet block, easily found located beside the carpark, and the new picnic tables and shelter, are proving to be another drawcard for visitors coming to view these pretty falls in South Gippsland. The Agnes Falls drop 59 metres to the gorge below, and are only a pleasant 10 […]

How are waterfalls supplied with continuing water?

I understand your explanation and diagrams. And understand how waterfalls are formed. But my question is why does waterfalls continue running. Pick at waterfall. I understand rain and snow makes water. But that couldn’t supply these waterfalls with continuing water. Does the rain and snow keep adding to the basin supply of water already there. […]

Fish River Gorge

In 2006, I and my two children (daughter, then 15; son, then 17) had spent 7 weeks Down Under, 1.5 of which were mostly on South Island. I am currently completing my 5th book “La Familia Hayburg: Down Under” and constantly compare my notes from then to other accounts of the area. One thing I’ve […]

Inconsistencies in Measurements

The Measuring of Falls can produce Inconsistent Numbers because of the Level of the Water in a Lake, Pond or Stream. The level of some Lakes can vary more than 200 Feet, so if the Falls flow into a Lake, the Falls may actually be considerably Taller in the Fall then in the Spring. If […]

Many A Delighful Day at Ingalalla Falls

As a previous resident of the area I visited the Falls many times. I found the most enjoyable time was during October when the sun was not too hot, the grass had not yet died off and the water was still running from the winter rains. We cooled our drinks in the brook which had […]

Not Worth It (Lower Whitewater Falls)

Tule river water fall

I was going there with my friends in the early 70’s when I was in high school. My brothers in the 60’s. There was no trail, no trash, no other people and no writing on the rocks! You could park where ever you wanted on hwy 190. No cops. All there was, was respect for […]

Making Niagara Look LIke A Cup Of Water

Iguazu Falls made Niagara look like a cup of water. Niagara is great, but Iguazu was unbelievable. Great experiences and the boat ride into the falls was a thrill of a life time (even though, at one point, I thought I might drown – made the mistake of opening my mouth to breath in). And […]

Rara (Mutarazi Falls)

Mutarazi Falls (sometimes spelled Mtarazi) in Zimbabwe – 762m has to be on the list.

Hanakaipiai Falls Advice from a Kamaaina

I’ve made that hike four or five times, over the past 40 years, at various times of year. At times, there’s a rope to help you cross the stream, as the water will be up to your thighs or higher. Also, there are often nudists here. I recall a fairly awkward moment in a very […]

Papalaua Falls’ Height (Private pilot in Hawaii)

I have the good fortune to have lived in Hawaii for the past 22 years. I am a private and former military pilot. I have flown past Papalaua Falls on Molokai’s northeast coast dozens of times over the years in fact have spread the ashes of several dear friends in the area because of it […]

Better in person than in a picture

No offense meant to the photographer, these are great pictures, this was just much more spectacular to me than it looks here. Part of that is the non-crowded setting- I was all alone here for an hour, much better than Anna-Ruby or other “public” places. Minnehhaha is worth the trip for sure. FYI I read […]
