|first sighting of Iguazu Falls from afar|
|islands amidst the river|
From the Gran Aventura, where a power boat approaches as closely as it can to the falls, the massive spray and water vapor drenching everyone inside, to the rascally coatimundis (South American raccoons) searching for easy food, to the rare and elusive jaguar roaming the national park, this area is one of the world's MUST SEES.
I stood there for hours staring at the falls, utterly amazed, positively spellbound by nature's sheer power. All my thoughts of lack were washed away as my focus was on the immense raw beauty surrounding me.
I will merely just share my photos and videos and hope they might provide 10% of the experience of actually being there, standing, mouth agape, looking at this gem of the natural world.

If this butterfly were a Pro athelete-
what sport and position would he play?

this area is over like 2 miles wide- a giant river flowing to create the falls

absolutely spellbinding, is it not?
