I just love that waterfall, going around a corner. Quite beautiful.

What an absolutely amazing place! And I'd also never heard of it (shame on me). Now you've given me one more place I want to see in my lifetime. Thanks for sharing this travel gem with us!

LestertheInvestor -- If you look closely at the photo of the four shadows in the river, you may recognize one of them as yours!

Really good quality photos DrF. I love looking at frozen landscapes - on a screen ! Your words about reflection jogged my memory. Ever been walking through a store and see someone you think you recognise in the distance ? And as you get closer you realise its a mirror you're walking towards ! My wife says I need glasses - but its OK - I stop before I get into a conversation !

Re: Quebec — A Walled European Fortress In America

Former Member ·
This is spectacular. A good example of one of those places that is just sitting there, not really getting a lot of attention from US travelers.

Thanks for the note, Chatterbot2. Yes, Quebec is relatively under-touristed, especially when compared to Europe. If you want to visit a 400 year old European stype fortress, don't want to fly across the Atlantic, want to go to place where French is the dominant language, want great food and friendly folks, then Quebec City should be at the top of your travel list.

The Quebecois were very amused at my attempts to speak French. It is always great to see people laugh.

Re: Quebec — A Walled European Fortress In America

DrFumblefinger ·
They may laugh, Chatterbot2, but I can tell you with absolute certainty that your fumbling attempts to speak their language melted their hearts. You were a valued guest, if not one of them, after trying.

Monsieur, vous êtes très gentil de le dire. I do try to make a stab at the local language wherever I travel. Around the world, people are amazingly patient with my mangling of their language. It does create good entertainment. Almost always, my puzzled efforts put people at ease. They are instantly willing to help "the poor confused thing".

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, August 23, 2015: Victoria Falls - “The Smoke That Thunders”, Zimbabwe

That certainly brings back memories! Sometime in the late 1970's my wife and I were lucky enough to travel to Zambia and drove down to the falls from Lusaka staying at a hotel close by. The next morning we decided to follow the foot path that went down to the bottom of the falls, through the bush, well watered by the spray of the falls. It was only on arrival at the bottom that we were greeted by a large notice saying "Beware of snakes" at which we beat a hasty retreat back to the hotel!

I didn't know you could walk to the bottom of the falls... Must have been an incredible sight (and quite a wet experience as well...)

The aerial images give an amazing perspective! I didn't know how narrow that gorge was. Was this a special helicopter overflight or were you lucky enough to get these shots from the window of your airplane?

Grand Escapades ·
The gorge is actually extremely narrow, and it is only from the air that you get a full perspective of the Falls, as you have too much mist to have a full grasp of the whole. Yes, I took an helicopter, and it was an amazing flight. From Zambia, you can also take an Ultra Light Flight, which must be even more amazing. I didn't cross into Zambia and regretted it afterwards. I would also have loved to jump in the Devil's Pool on the Zambian side, but I think there was too much water at that...

Re: El Yunque: A visit to the rain forest

DrFumblefinger ·
A great visit and a great hike! Seems like you had nice weather. Was it wet underfoot? Trails have good traction or was slipping and sliding a problem?
Comment

Re: El Yunque: A visit to the rain forest

PHeymont ·
Ah, yes...that's something I left out. Traction on the trails was just fine...until it started to rain on our way back to the trailhead. That's when we realized the obvious: in a rain forest, it rains. And of course, the umbrellas were in San Juan. And the overpriced ponchos were in the car, back at the trailhead!

It is too bad you didn't make it to La Mina - Swimming under the falls is one of my favorite things to do in Puerto Rico! I ould say that it is closer to 1.5 miles each way.
