Here is another case of an image not doing a scene justice.
This is a waterfall we frolicked under in Panama. The angle here is deceptive, as the whole thing was probably twenty or thirty feet tall. We had taken a dugout canoe about an hour up the Rio Changres to visit an Embera Indian village. On the return, we took the canoe up a little tributary as far as we could, then walked in the rest of the way. Coming around a corner, crawling over some rocks, we saw this.
It was a big pool of cool water. After being out in the sun, the water felt divine. We swam around in the pool, then swam up and wallowed right at the base of the falls. It was fantastic, one of the best stretches of twenty minutes over the entire trip.
