Famous Waterfall in Armenia Threatened

The struggle between long-term conservation versus short-term economics has been picking up in intensity, and this time it appears that one of Armenia's most famous waterfalls is about to be sacrificed according to this article.

I'm sure we can expect more battles like this around the world as energy demands continue to accelerate while the planet's natural resources continue to dwindle.

Waterfall Fatality in Mt Rainier

This bit of sad news caught my eye because Julie and I were there a little over a couple of weeks ago!

This seems to be a particularly bad year for waterfall-related fatalities around the world. Some recent fatalities over Vernal Fall and Wapama Falls (both in Yosemite) as well as near Eaton Canyon Falls in Altadena come to mind.

So we must emphasize that while the beauty of Nature is something to appreciate and seek out, you must respect its dangers by taking measures to minimize your exposure to these risks thereby maximizing your safety and enjoyment.

Here's the article I stumbled across.

Dughsagar Waterfall to be in next Bond Movie

While waterfalls in India are nothing new when it comes to Bollywood movies, shows, and music videos, it looks like they're going to feature one that we've been to for the next Bond movie (the first time in a while).

At least, that's what is reported according to this bit of news that I came across.

Major Updates to Pacific Northwest Section

Based on our recent trip to both Washington and Alaska, I've finally gotten around to completing the updates to the Pacific Northwest region. Like I said before, everything takes longer when you also have to care for a baby, including these write-ups let alone the trip itself.

Nonetheless, there have been extensive updates with new waterfalls in Washington, the addition of Alaska and its waterfalls, updates to logistics information, and even updates to some familiar waterfalls like Snoqualmie Falls as well as the Other Attractions page.

There's a lot to digest, but you can see the pages that were recently added or updated here.

I also managed to update the trip diaries (this was actually done before I went back to work, but I forgot to announce it) so if you're into reading about our experiences firsthand, you can see the latest stories here.

Finally, I also forgot about announcing updates to the California page based on an overnight backpacking trip I took the weekend before the two-week trip to the Pacific Northwest. In there was the addition of Moonlight Falls as well as the trip diary associated with it.

Coming Home from Seattle

We've just returned from a trip to Washington and Alaska with our infant. It wasn't easy, but we will definitely have new additions to the World of Waterfalls site in the coming weeks.

As usual, everything takes longer when a child is involved. And that includes updating the website after a trip!

Stay tuned...
