Iguazu Falls

It has been reported that Elinor Roosevelt exclaimed upon her first visit to Iguazu falls: “poor Niagara!”

The falls border Argentina and Brazil, where an inconceivable amount of water flow from the upper and lower Iguazu River. When more inconceivable is that there falls have gone dry twice in the last fifty years.

There is no possible way to capture the magnificence of these “cataracas” in photographs, particularly with a cell phone. Here are some feeble attempts.


We were unable to visit the Brazilian side of the falls for a more panoramic view sure to the high cost and time required to get a visa. Form Brazil it would be apparent that the Niagara horseshoe falls pale by comparison.

    Among the many photos of Iguazu, I cannot pick a favorite! It is all so special, and I can see why it is a world class attraction. I loved the earlier one of Charlie and Paula looking soaked in their rain gear…and smiles as big as the waterfalls around you! Many Thanks for all the hours spent developing your blog. Well Done traveler friends!
