Tallest Waterfalls Revisited

After the latest research and field observations from recent trips, we've revamped both of our tallest waterfalls pages

A key change we've made is that we've added an additional restriction that we will now only consider waterfalls that flow reliably and with appreciable volume for an average of six months out of the year every year.  This should at least eliminate some of the smaller and ephemeral waterfalls that tend to convolute and distort lists such as this. 

After all, if you were looking for waterfalls on your next trip, would you want to be wasting your time and money chasing a dinky trickle? 

That's why we're constantly trying to revisit and re-evaluate what we have since we're trying to convey as much as we are certain about instead of frivolously copying from the literature.

Consequently, this has pushed out some waterfalls that have previously sat on one or both of our lists while bringing back others.  In one case, we introduced a new one based on our recent trip in France.
