“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller
…turning the corner, one of the most jaw-dropping natural wonders revealed itself and I was in awe. Iguazu Falls, nestled in the northeastern portion of Argentina, is a world-class collection of 275 of the most breathtaking waterfalls one could ever see.
From Dos Hermanas and Salto Pequeno to Garganta de Diablo (The Devil’s Throat), your eyes are treated to a tropical playground where pumas, jaguars, toucans and giant vultures roam free, while your ears are flooded with the sounds of millions of gallons of rushing water plunging and slapping the rocks below. And your body is treated to a fresh coat of welcoming mist, helping to cool you down from the sun above.
It is all at once overwhelming, but in the same sense, calming. Knowing that places like these exist on earth is comforting. Other than a few mud roads and tourist buildings, Iguazu Falls is an untouched jewel.
Here are a few of more photos, along with a slideshow below.
