Australian Waterfall blown upwards

I stumbled across this BBC article about a waterfall blowing upwards due to the fierce winds afflicting the area. What impressed me more was the existence of this waterfall, which Julie and I were never aware of in all the times we've been to Australia!

I suspect it's in Royal National Park though we ourselves never had a chance to visit it, especially given the drought conditions we were faced with. However, it looks like the heavy rains both this year and last have revived many waterfalls there, including this one!

Check it out!

Cedar Creek Falls Closed After Fatality

My mom and I visited Cedar Creek Falls near Ramona in the Winter a few years ago. Now, it seems like the popularity of the falls has really exploded, especially with the new trail from the Ramona Estates. However, with the increase in popularity, there have also been an increase in injuries and fatalities. This latest fatality prompted the Forest Service to close access to the falls pending an investigation.

While waterfalls are beautiful and worth the trouble to reach, you do have to respect Nature and be prepared. Cedar Falls has demonstrated what happens when you're unprepared or take unnecessary risks diving.

Video on Moonbows in Yosemite

Something we have read and heard much about but haven't done (yet) is the witnessing of a moonbow in Yosemite National Park. I just chanced on this very well done video about the topic. Indeed, it's utterly amazing how many different ways you can experience the magic of the waterfalls in Yosemite...
