see that little platform on the edge of that green cliff on the far right side of this photo?
that was quite possibly my favorite spot at the falls.
standing on that platform, with the water thundering down from high above and the spray soaking your body, fresh and cool and constant, you feel like you are in it. in the most glorious way possible. you get this burst of energy and want to run through the mist. my parents and brother felt it too – we were all giggling and going right up to the rail to be next to the roaring water. when you’re there, side by side with an enormous waterfall, you feel like a kid again.
here’s a picture of my parents at the edge of the rail:
what a natural wonder, those falls are.
