Discovering the Falls
Iguazu Falls

I'll be very honest - I wasn't quite sure what to expect with Iguazu Falls when planning my trip.  I knew it was one of the "Seven Natural Wonders of the World" and obviously very popular, but it's hard to capture that with your imagination or from pictures.  Powerful is the first thing that comes to mind whenever I think of it now. We traveled there in June - the beginning of winter - and the water levels were very high (so much so that the walkway to Devil's Throat was closed the day after we were there due to water flowing over the walkways - yikes)!  It drizzled the entire time we were there but thanks to our ever-stylish $10 rain ponchos, we stayed pretty dry and comfortable.  An umbrella was a desired supply we should have considered (once again - new tip to give to travelers when going during rainy season)! The overall day was really fun - we were able to see so many different perspectives of the falls and while there was an incessant need to capture every moment on camera - in this case - none of the photos can really describe what it's like to be standing there with the roaring and crashing water overhead (or below your feet in some of the areas).  Nonetheless - we sure tried to capture those moments!
Braving the Falls! Braving the Falls!
