There was one

My brother negotiating the treacherous Rocks O' Certain Death" on the way to the falls


For years I have been waiting to see the vaunted White Tank Falls and have finally achieved that goal. It wasn't like climbing Everest, though I did get a couple of "soakers" when my boot slipped off the treacherous rocks and into the pool at the bo0ttom of the falls. My brother blazed the trail to this 9th wonder of the world as I followed doggedly behind - a trek which I paid for the next morning with sore knees. Just wanted all my readers to know what lengths I'll go to, what obstacles I'll surmount, and dangers I'll endure to bring them a good tale.



The Wondrous White Tanks Falls - makes Niagara look like a dwarf pissing over a bridge.

"Rocks o' certain Death"? Surely you jest.

Glad to know you had such a great time. The video is interesting. However, it doesn't do justice to your comment about a dwarf. snerx.

WOW!
Can barely hear you talking with the roar of those falls behind you...

(ha. That's actually more falls than I saw at Yosemite National Park when I went in October a few years back.
I still joke Dan and Charlene about if they have the falls photo shopped in)

That reminds me of one of the times I went rock climbing at a park called "Great Falls". Yeah, what a name, eh? Fortunately we didn't actually fall, har har.
