Iguassu Falls: Brazil

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

After our adventure to the bottom of the world and back we returned to Buenos Aires for a night and then took off the following morning for Iguassu Falls. I first posted about the falls last February when it was so cold I needed a reminder of what it felt like to be warm.

Our trip started with a border crossing to Brazil to see these magnificent falls. The pictures only tell a small part of the story. I’m not even sure words could adequately describe the mystic feeling of the falls, the way the air felt warm and misty on my skin, or how magical it felt walking with brilliantly coloured butterflies fluttering everywhere you looked.

Amazing views even through the foliage, though I suspect I snapped this pic because of the large spider on the right rather than the falls.

After about an hour of walking, we reached the climax of the hike, a gigantic waterfall.  I believe the view is the Brazilian side of the Devil’s Throat, featured in the first post of the falls.  A small cormorant perched on a rock enjoying the sun and the mist.

And in the other direction, the cormorant’s view. We were on a walkway enshrouded by mist, surrounded by the gushing sound of falls spilling over.

Stay tuned for more pictures from the Argentine side. After Devil’s Throat we hiked along the Upper Trail and the Lower Trail.
