New Tallest Icelandic Waterfall?

Back in 2007, we surveyed as many waterfalls in Iceland as we possibly could. This included Glymur, which was the tallest waterfall at the time. Now with receding glaciers, another waterfall has been discovered that could dethrone Glymur as the country's tallest. This article explains.

Yosemite Trip Diary Posted

This is about a week overdue, but everything takes longer when you have a baby.

We attempted to see for ourselves how much the high snowpack has had an effect on the waterfalls in Yosemite Valley. Much to our chagrin, we showed up in early June and still managed to experience Spring-like conditions with cooler temperatures (15 degrees F below seasonal) and even a late Spring storm!

So we did see the waterfalls flowing on the higher side of average, but it was surprisingly less vigorous than some of our visits in June of both 2002 and 2003. I guess it wasn't warm enough to unlock all that water still trapped in the snow!

On the bright side, Julie's mom and Tahia got to experience this magical place for the firs time, and besides, the mosquitoes were practically non-existent!

Walkway to one of Kerikeri, New Zealand's best kept secrets

Back in 2004 when we visited the Kerikeri area in New Zealand, we visited the Rainbow Falls. Little did we know that there was another lovely waterfall just downstream of it.

This latest news that I came across indicated that they're building a new walkway to this "secret" waterfall (Wairoa Falls). So I guess the "secret" is out!

Check it out!
