9 Wondrous Waterfalls from Around the World
From the Ethiopian Review:
Mother Nature never ceases to amaze us. If, at times, we forget the awesome power she wields, all it takes to remind us is a glance at one of the earth’s most magnificent works of art: the waterfall. Monstrous in size, a fall’s power—and, most often, surreal setting—keeps visitors mesmerized year after year. Whether taken in from above, while looking down at the plunging water, or from afar for a pure panoramic effect, the nine waterfalls below are loved for their soaring heights, peaceful sounds and remarkable histories…
Niagara Falls in North America
This massive waterfall, which partially resides in Ontario, Canada, is located in America’s oldest state park—the Niagara Reservation State Park. Classified as a segmented waterfall because the water flow splits into two side-by-side falls, Niagara Falls is one of the most powerful waterfalls in North America. Four of the five Great Lakes (Superior, Michigan, Huron and Erie) drain into the Niagara River before spewing into Lake Ontario—which makes up one-fifth of the world’s fresh water supply.
