Beautiful. Just looked it up and Victoria is only listed as 108m. Iguaçú is listed as max of 82m. However, as I just learned, it was named as one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

Wonder if Rob's voice was in the running?

Another cool thought is to shut it off and drain it.

Oh Yea ! had to take the kids. I always have like the Maid.

Not that I don't love Niagara but you have, basically, three waterfalls that are cut short by a series of locks due to the erosion that the full flow caused. Thus my comment and vote that they should open up the TRUE waterfall at least one day a year.

Still, nothing beats Iguaçú. The Paraná is bigger and the falls are unbelievable. Put that together with a crazy Brazil-based, throw caution to the wind, twin Johnson motor ride into the "caldera" or full flow horseshoes, and there is no comparison. Anyone have the means to get there in a lifetime? GO!!!  Only take the boatride if you are a trusting person. The force of the water puts the Maid of Mist to shame as does the entire experience of Iguaçú.

 I did that as a teen.  I think I am lucky to live near the mountains and lots of waterfalls (none with the volume of Niagra) but I have seen falls more than 7 times higher, so the power was something I was expecting.  its still realy impressive.

 yep.  I was there for work, and since its so pricy they said we needed to share rooms.  Fucking bullshit.  so I bitched and said that I would stay at a motel down the road.  so when one of our group couldnt attend due to a death in the family I ended up rooming alone.  then I found that after a certain pay grade you got your own room and bitched.  shortly thereafter we changed the policy and dont share rooms now

Did you go on one of the "Maid Of The Mist" boats? I didn't think I would like it but my wife wanted to do it so we did. It turned out to be pretty awesome. When you get up close from the bottom you really get a sense of just how powerful the falls are.

[METALMANJP] Tuesday, October 08, 2013 9:26:46 AM 

Yes, I could have sat there all day watching the Falls. But man was that place pricey  or what !

[Head banger] Tuesday, October 08, 2013 7:41:38 AM

[Head banger] Sunday, October 06, 2013 6:20:29 PM

I say that is the Ontario side. Taking bets?
(catch me before we get the actual answer....I have been blowing my picks all weekend with the Tigers last night (WTF? Why take out Verlander?!) and the Red Wings (slaughtered)

Glad to hear that you had a good time, Metalman! Can't wait to see the pics (mini or otherwise).

Kewl, man! Sounds like a great trip (except for the breakfast prices...lol).
Also, thanks for the b-day wishes.

I just came back from a weekend getaway, to Pine Creek Gorge AKA The Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. Really cool place in the Allegheny Mts. I will post pics soon. Pine creek is the longest river in the USA. The gorge is 45 miles long 160,000 acres and a maximum depth of 1500 feet. The views were spectacular !

[METALMANJP] Friday, October 04, 2013 8:41:33 AM 

Don't know how to resize the pic. But that was the view out of our room at the Falls View Marriott. I was a bit out of my league but what the hell we only stayed two nights. The breakfast for 6 people was $145.00.
