W is for waterfalls

Waterfalls can be soothing to the weary traveler. There is something comforting about the sound of water falling that lulls us into a peaceful state. I have a few pictures of waterfalls. 

They can also be dangerous. Our desire to get up close can put us in danger of getting too close and losing our footing. Once while hiking near Steamboat Springs, CO, to see a waterfall up close, my husband heard our friend's feet scrambling in the gravel to stay on the trail. My husband was close enough that he grabbed the friend and prevented him from falling in the crevice. 

I believe the grandest waterfalls are in Yosemite CA. The park is awe inspiring. I suggest you go in the winter, when there will be fewer people.

  1. I love waterfalls and hiking to them as well. I've been to Yosemite and was lucky to be there on a day when there was lots of water coming over the falls. I've also enjoyed hikes to falls in Hawaii, NC, SC, Pennsylvania, and NY.
    My husband traveled to Guyana with his dad who grew up there and got an amazing picture of Kaieteur Falls.

  3. We try to stop at at least one waterfall along our travel route where there are falls. They are each so different and yet have similarities including the calming effect.

  4. Looks beautiful! My husband and I were considering traveling west to one of the national parks this upcoming fall. Maybe this will be the one? :)
