Iguazu is a massive array of over 200 separate waterfalls, a
World Heritage Site, which form a portion of the border
between Argentina and Brazil. This picture, taken from
Argentina's upper circuit, shows one of the longest waterfall
rows. (It had been a fairly dry year.)
This close-up shows falls on the right side of the prior shot.
On the far left, this was the largest upper circuit waterfall.
|Devil's Throat is the star at Iguazu, the tallest waterfall, also
consuming the largest amount of water. Approached by rail
and then a catwalk hike over the Iguazu River, the mouth of
Devil's Throat can be seen on the Argentine side. Wind and
the waterfall combined to produce so much spray that,
although I could stand directly above it, no photography
directly into the massive throat was possible.
