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 […]

My Favorite Iceland Waterfalls

On my top ten (of Iceland Waterfalls), I’d place Gullfoss first but ordering them is difficult. Another worthwhile area is Gjain which has a number of picturesque falls all visible from one vantage point. I have written a story on Iceland’s natural beauty including photos of five of my favourite waterfalls (Dettifoss, Gullfoss, Svartifoss, Ofaerufoss […]

Waterfall at Lake Waikaremoana (Korokoro Falls, Te Urewera National Park, North Island)

Lake Waikaremoana or ”sea of rippling water” in Maori is off the beaten track for most travelers to New Zealand. This waterfall is only accessible via boat or during a 53km hike round the lake. On the weekend I made the hike the lake was completely shrouded in mist, I think it was a worthwhile […]

Milla Milla Falls in the Atherton Tablelands (Queensland, Australia)

I took this picture with an old APS camera and it’s one of my favorites from a 14 month trip to Australia between 1997 and 1998. I especially like the flower (possibly an Orchid) in the foreground.

Have You Been To Union Falls?

Have you seen Union Falls in the southeast part of Yellowstone? Height is 260 ft.

Cold doesn’t even begin to describe it (Mangawhero Falls)

August of 2007, my dad and I took a short trip to NZ, which I’ve always wanted to do. We were the only ones booked on the trip around lake Taupo and Tongiriro park that day. This was one of our stops. I do happen to be a Lord of the Rings fan, and I […]

Land Of Nature (Whangarei Falls)

Hi, I’m Jason from Malaysia. We stopped by Whangarei Falls and was welcomed by the sound of its falling water. It was a very beautiful and relaxing place to be. We spent over an hour here just appreciating nature at its best. I highly recommend everyone who visits the North Island to drop by this […]

My Glen Aulin Backpacking Trip

My most successful backpacking trip was from Tuolumne Meadows to Glen Aulin with my two sons, my nephew, my oldest son’s friend, and two of my best friends (the two handsome old guys on the right side of the picture). To see all the water falls in the early summer is truly beautiful. The trip […]


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 […]

Kumbakkarai Falls in South India, India

I belong to Madurai, Tamil Nadu, South India. We have two falls near to our place, One is Kutlaadampatti Falls within 20-30 km from my house and another one, Kumbakkarai Falls, adjacent to a small town, Periakulam about 60 km from my place, Madurai. At present, I am working in Karaikal, a spot about 300 […]

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 […]
