June 16th International Waterfall Day

Waterfalls are beautiful to look at, dangerous to try and tempt and can be another source of power if we ever figure them out. The tallest waterfall in the world is Angel Falls in Venezuela with a 3,212 foot drop. Probably the most famous is Niagara Falls here in the US. Where ever there are falls there has to be a great source of water constantly available. Another one of those mysteries, at least to me, that Mother Nature provides. How can they not dry up at some point?

How to celebrate – Look around your area for waterfalls. Create a waterfall in your backyard. Start a photo collection of the waterfalls you see.

June 16th International Waterfall Day

Waterfalls are spectacular. They are beautiful to watch, often dangerous to hang out in, and are awesome to feel the power of. The tallest waterfall in the world is Angel Falls, in Venezuela, which drops some 3,212 feet. The widest is Khone Falls, at 35,376 feet wide in Africa. By comparison Niagara Falls drops 167 feet and is 2,200 feet wide. It’s volume of water is 150,000 gallons a second. You have to wonder where all that water comes from? (but that’s another story) Today was created by Bob Matthews of Rochester, NY in 2020.

How to celebrate – Go see a waterfall. Build your own waterfall in your backyard. Go take a shower.
