Five Waterfalls

Are there waterfalls in every country?

Hmm…interesting question.

I had never really thought about that before!


Well, let’s see how many of the countries we have visited had waterfalls. 

Hint: Click on any photo to enlarge it. It really makes a difference!

Sunwapta Falls



Jasper National Park (in western Canada) is the home of Sunwapta Falls. Those are the Rocky Mountains in the background.

Gullfoss Falls 


 Our Golden Circle bus tour in Iceland stopped here. Check out my posting about that tour to learn more about the falls. Click here. 

Lealt Falls

Isle of Skye, Scotland

049-and-a-waterfalls-we-almost-missed-seeingWe almost missed Lealt Falls! From the road it is invisible. Not until we stopped at a pullout (in what seemed to be the middle of nowhere) and followed a walking path that said “falls” were we able to look back and see them…right beside the road.

These falls also “sneak up” on one.  A friend took this photo in the same area of China as the “ten thousand hills” …south western China.

Geiranger Fjord



We boarded the first cruise of the day to spend a couple of hours sailing in the Geiranger Fjord. Wow, what an experience! There are numerous falls similar to this one cascading down from towering heights into the fjord.

So that is five countries…Canada, Scotland, China, Iceland, and Norway.
