I Love Waterfalls…Take a look at these pics

Venezuela’s Angel Falls is the tallest in the world at 3,211 feet high. Unlike most cascades, Angel Falls isn’t fed by snowmelt, a lake, or a river—but by rainfall from the tropical clouds. Its located in Canaima National Park, which has an on-site airport that connects visitors to and from Venezuela’s capital city, Caracas

Plitvice Lakes-Croatia-  This is one of my favorites 🙂

If the Grand Canyon were covered in Technicolor green moss, spotted with 16 lakes across its base and laced with thousands of falls along its walls, it would look a little something like Plitvice Lakes National Park in southwestern Croatia ($15 entrance fee, per person).

The color of the water is intensely turquoise, thanks to the unique mix of minerals and organisms in runoff from the Dinaric Alps.

The Plitvice National Park Service offers three-hour tours, starting at $130 for groups, but it’s more fun to explore at your own pace, stopping to duck under waterfalls when you need to cool off. Allow a solid two to three hours to poke around, and be sure to take in the view from the first entrance to the park.

The perch, high above a series of caves, overlooks all the lakes. Maps for sale ($4 each) at the tourist information booths, located at each of the park’s two entrances, will help you navigate the park’s labyrinth of trails and boardwalks.

Puerto Rico -Salto Curet in Maricao .

*** PUERTO RICO , NEED I SAY MORE 🙂 ****

Not easy to get to. Besides being about ½-hour drive along a small, twisty, turning mountain road, once you actually get to the river you have hike in and then walk up stream. But I think it is very pretty and worth the effort — if you have the time.Buried deep in the western mountains of Puerto Rico is a beautiful waterfall called Salto Curet. It is actually a series of falls culminating in a final fall of 50 feet to the deep pool below. The water is frigid, not what you expect in Puerto Rico.

RUBY FALLS -Chattanooga, Tennessee.
THIS IS VERY COOL!!!

Electric lights were installed in the cave, making it one of the first commercial caves to be so outfitted. Motorists travelling on I-75 in the 70’s were subjected to dozens – maybe hundreds – of billboards along their route with the words “VISIT RUBY FALLS” beginning hundreds of miles north and south of the falls itself. Ruby Falls remains a staple of Chattanooga tourism, operating daily. Ruby Falls is owned by the Steiner family of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
