It's getting late. You get the idea. We're crazy about waterfalls!

Travel Bug out.


  1. What a great list... for waterfall lovers! I shall add these to my list of must visit waterfalls. Keep on finding more!

    1. Thank you! So many waterfalls, so little time. And I forgot Burney Falls in northern California southeast of Weed. Lovely.

  2. Yep - I'm a waterfall lover too. And luckily, a bunch of your favorites are right here in my backyard! :)

  3. Thanks for this list! We are going to come back west next spring by traveling across Canada on the Yellowhead Hwy. We hope to spend time in the northern Rockies. I love waterfalls! So I will keep this specific blog in my info for future reference.

    1. If you go to Icefields Parkway between Banff and Jasper, Alberta, be sure to get a copy of the Milepost for the area. You will find so many good stops along the way, all listed by milepost. It's not only Jasper and Banff that are awesome, but also Kootenay and Yoho National Parks and the Loop Brook Trail in Mount Rogers National Historic Site as well as Mt.Revelstoke. The only thing is, those are off Trans-Canada Hwy 1. Yellowhead Hwy is farther north, if I recall correctly.

  4. WOW what a great list and you must have had so much fun going to each one.

    1. We have a wonderful time "chasing waterfalls." If you're ever in the Pacific Northwest, our favorite waterfall book is "Waterfalls of the Pacific Northwest." Great waterfall book!

  5. Great post. We just visited Bridal Veil Falls in Telluride CO. There is something about a waterfall....just makes me smile :-)

    1. It's all those negative ions in the air...very relaxing.

  6. Great list! We hiked the Trail of Ten Falls on Monday. It was spectacular!

  7. AH Susan I found you finally. I don't do Google+ for reasons you already know if you ready my blog often so I was afraid I wasn't going to be able to thank you for that GREAT list of waterfalls. I love them and have another for you to add to your list if you didn't see it in my last post. It's a little one in the fall but so are lots of others then. There are big plans for preserving the area around it so if you get to Old Orchard Beach Maine, go see Cascade Falls. And thanks again for your comment! Love to hear from you. We seem to have a lot in common.

    1. Thanks, Sherry. I added Cascade Falls to our bucket list.

      We do have a lot in common. You have a great blog.
