Welcome to Iguazu Falls!
As a journalist, I know the phrase, “a picture is worth a thousand words” is a terribly overused cliche. But phrases become cliche for a reason, and in the case of Iguazu Falls, the spectacular mass of water cascading thunderously down hundreds of feet of the Iguazu River between the borders of Argentina and Brazil, it is absolutely true. Among the top three largest waterfalls in the world in terms of height, volume of water and width, the scene playing out before my eyes left me speechless, and I determined that my photos would paint a much better picture than my measly words ever could. So behold, my day at Iguazu Falls! (Note: All photos taken from the Argentina side of the falls.)
The pathway leading to the big draw–Devil’s Throat.
Hope this doesn’t happen often!
The roaring grows deafening as you approach Devil’s Throat.
I can’t deny that standing above, staring into the misty abyss was terrifying!
I was shaking in my flip flops!
A caiman chilling near the falls–don’t get too close little guy!
A view of the upper falls from the lower falls. I was blown away by beauty!
So many animals! I joined the crowd taking pictures of this funny little monkey.
Double rainbows abounded, but sadly I did not find a pot of gold.
Every view was more amazing than the last!
A cute little coati looking for food. They are considered the rats of Iguazu.
I couldn’t help smile at all the beauty. Since I was exploring alone, I must have looked a little crazy.
