Iguazu falls was our last stop in Argentina before Forest and I got our visas and headed on to Brazil. The waterfalls were beyond magnificent - I have never seen anything like them.
Strangely enough, being near the falls was eerily similar to my experience of being very close to an enormous forest fire last summer in Stehekin which swallowed up thousands of acres of land. The sheer magnitude of the falls, the mists thrown up hundreds of feet in the air, and the powerful roar of the water plummeting over Iguazu bore an uncanny resemblance to the enormous forest fire with its billowing clouds of smoke rising from the ground and the roar of acre upon acre of spreading flames.
Both are incredible sights to behold. Myself, I found the waterfall experience a bit more relaxing than the wildfire one. Here are some shots from our two days there.
