Stories Behind Waterfall Names

I came across this blog, which details how eight of the world's most famous waterfalls got their names. Interestingly, we've visited all of the ones he mentions.

While there are some more stories and details regarding the names of some of these falls (like Sutherland Falls and Catarata Gocta), I definitely didn't know about the tid bits he talked about regarding Yosemite Falls, Niagara Falls, and Iguazu Falls among others.

Check it out and learn a little more about these marvelous attractions.
