Where I stayed
On the first day, we checked out a path known as the Devil`s Throat. You walk down an elevated boardwalk which takes you across the river and out right to the edge of the largest set of falls in the park. It`s absolutely amazing -- just a few feet below you, you can see, hear and even feel millions of gallons of water pouring down the falls. The falls themselves create quite a bit of mist, so you end up soaked while standing there. We stood there for over an hour, just soaking up the views before returning for a relaxing evening back in town.
Tuesday, we headed back to the falls
Afterwards, we stopped for a quick lunch, then headed to the Upper Circuit. This, of course, gives you a view of the falls from above, and some great panoramas. As we were enjoying the views, another American came up and asked if John would be willing to take a video (using an iphone) as he proposed to his girlfriend. What a backdrop!!! She was quite surprised, and said yes.
Again, words just don`t describe the falls. Neither will the pictures, but it was a clear highlight for our trip, and well worth spending three days at!
