Oh, well… since time is a hot commodity during vacation, I will just share here the links with our Instagram images… once time becomes more available, a better writing/blogging job will happen. Thank you!
It’s about a 2 hour drive from Brasilia, in order to get to the waterfall, but it is definitely worth the trek![as described by Giddyforpoints, on First2Board – thank you for sharing!
Location: Formosa, Brazil
The Itiquira Falls is a waterfall in Brazil. They are located 34 kilometers north of Formosa in the state of Goiás and 115 kilometers from Brasília on a paved road. The falls have a height of 168 meters, making them possibly the highest accessible waterfall in Brazil and the second highest overall. The falls are formed by the drop of the Itiquira River from the higher central plateau north of Formosa into the deep Paraná River valley. The waters are unpolluted and a bottling plant is located on the river above the falls. The area is a municipal park and is protected from development. There are tourist facilities outside the park, near the entrance. (source: Wikipedia)
Thank you for stopping by…
Promise: there’ll be no regrets at all!
But, first, let me showcase here my newest discovery: The Media Explorer
How cool is that? 😮
Now, go for it: enjoy the image gallery, our so-called ‘Pictorial Journal’!

I know, I know…. Procrastination seems to be word of order…
I know I’ve gotta get out the images from our recent hiking adventure to the Muela del Diablo [“Devil’s Tooth”], but feel like we’re always caught up, keeping ourselves afloat while cruising through daily homework [kids], the demanding toddler and work [outside the house, for the grown-ups!]
I know, I know…. Procrastination seems to be word of the moment… 😮
Evnetually, I’ve gotta get the images from our recent hiking adventure out, the drive to the Muela del Diablo [“Devil’s Molar“, and its 150 meters, on a 3,800m of altitude]; but feel like we’re always caught up, keeping ourselves afloat while cruising through daily homework [kids], attending to the demanding toddler and obviously, going to work [outside the house, for the grown-ups!]
This wild rock [“Muela”] can be seen from almost every where in the southern part of La Paz. The giant appears steep und unapproachable right within its bizarrely shaped erosion landscape and green lands.
For the time being, I’m leaving here a little ‘place holder’ for what’s to come. Hopefully, very soon. 😮
And, as a bit of a spoiler [text borrowed from The Gadling], “Devil’s Tooth is an inactive volcano that is approximately 492 feet high. According to our guide, it got its name because indigenous people believed it looked like the tooth of Satan.”
The command for our past Sunday was: “are you ready?” I’m sure these ones here were!
More images to come in the near future… stay tuned!
La Muela del Diablo!
