“Nice But Never Again” (Black Star Canyon Falls – January 4, 2020)

We even had to scramble and skirt by some slippery and eroded ledges or dropoffs (including one rope-assisted part) where Tahia got real nervous and even cried as she was starting to lose confidence..

“Snow Den” (Switzer Falls – December 28, 2019)

Julie and I were hoping big time that it wouldn’t result in a really bad injury to one of them where we’d likely get blamed for bringing them to this hike in the first place should such a calamity…

Robert Louis Stevenson Pool

The Robert Louis Stevenson Pool (or RLS Pool for short) was kind of an unexpected waterfalling surprise when Julie and I made a last-minute visit to the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum (or RLS Museum)..

Sauniatu Waterfall

Fuipisia Falls

Fuipisia Falls (or Fuipisia Waterfall) was actually a series of two impressive waterfalls on different streams. The first waterfall was partially concealed so viewing it was kind of awkward…

Sopoaga Falls

Sopoaga Falls (I’ve also seen it called Sopo’aga Waterfall) was another roadside waterfall on the Samoan island of ‘Upolu. Similar with the Papapapaitai Falls, we didn’t need to exert ourselves…

Papapapaitai Falls

Papapapaitai Falls (I’ve also seen it referred to as Papapapaitai Waterfall as well as Papapapai-tai Falls or Papapapai-Uta Falls) was probably the easiest of the Samoan waterfalls that we…

“Circles” (Samoa – November 9, 2019 to November 18, 2019)

Angel Falls and Devils Slide

Angel Falls and Devils Slide were a pair of waterfalls on Willow Creek that spilled into the popular play areas on the north shore of Bass Lake. Of the two named waterfalls on Willow Creek…

Forsakar

The Forsakar Waterfall was the southernmost of the waterfalls that we encountered in Sweden, which alone kind of made it stand out to us as we didn’t expect any waterfalls this far south in the…

Gloppefossen

Gloppefossen was one of the highest permanent waterfalls (Reiårsfossen could be taller) in the Setesdal Valley with a cumulative drop of around 120m (or up to 140m if I include some of the cascades…
