Yellowstone Falls

Today is the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. What better way to celebrate than with a photo of one of the park system’s most iconic landmarks. Yellowstone National Park is the first National Park. Its name is from the river that cuts its way through the land of the yellow rock. Today, Yellowstone is more…

Hidden Routeburn Falls

The Routeburn Falls is one of the highlights of the Routeburn Track, located on New Zealand’s South Island. The falls are directly behind the Routeburn Falls Hut, which is a popular spot to overnight while on the trail and one I can’t recommend highly enough. These falls are a permanent fixture on the high alpine…

Clear Creek Cascade

This is the Clear Creek flowing down from Clear Lake in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. Some might call this a waterfall, but technically the water never falls. It cascades down the large rock face. This viewpoint can be accessed by a short side excursion from the Ice Lake Basin trail. It is located about a third of…

Nevada Falls Vista

A view from the top of Nevada Falls just before the Merced River takes the 594′ plunge. Yosemite was arguably our first national park as it was a state park before Yellowstone was created. From this vantage point, you can definitely see why this land was set aside for all generations to enjoy.

Kravice Falls

My wife and I signed up to be a part of a mission trip to Bosnia-Herzegovina a few years back. She immediately started researching the country and came across the Kravice Falls. She half jokingly said that she hoped we had a chance to see these while we were there. Little did we know that…

Mist of the Veil

At a height of 365′, Telluride’s Bridal Veil Falls is the tallest waterfall in the state of Colorado. As the water crashes into the shallow and rocky creek below, it explodes into a misty cloud. It is wedged into a beautiful spot in the San Juan Mountains. The waterfall completely freezes in the winter—a 365′…

Fish Creek Falls

Fish Creek Falls is a 283′ high waterfall in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. It is an easy 1/4 mile hike from the parking lot to the viewing area, but if you are feeling adventurous you can wade through the creek below, climbing over boulders on your way to the foot of the falls. It is a magnificent…

Alberta Falls

This is Alberta Falls, one of the most popular destination hikes within Rocky Mountain National Park. It is an easy 1.7 miles from the Bear Lake parking area. It is alway crowded, but very beautiful. It’s especially breathtaking when the water flow is high so I suggest visiting in late June, which is when this photo…
