    Songefjord, near Flam Norway.

    At points in the fjord, the sides were over a mile high, and the water was well over 1500' deep. We tried anchoring, but even 10 feet off the shore it was over 500 feet deep. We basically needed to find a curved cove and tie the boat off to shore, fore and aft. In a day we easily saw 100 waterfalls all of equal magnitude.

    For perspective, that boat is 70' long, and I am easily 1/2 mile away.

    This we found on a bike ride down from the top of the fjord. For all you kayakers, I believe it was in a TGR film, although I forget what film. It basically disappears into a giant hole and comes out the side of a cliff on the other side of the road. Pretty cool color too.

    <font size="3" color="#FFFFCC">A couple waterfalls I ran into while cruising the road from Pasto to Ipiales Columbia. My kickstand broke somewhere northeast of Pasto, so getting a photo of this waterfall was a challenge. In the photo with the military look how my bike is kept upright...

    The waterfalls were amazing. But don't seem to stand up to the amazing photos in this thread. Keep it up!</font>

    An hour later I was struck with more awe and as I rounded a corner saw a 100 foot waterfall splashing above me and a second tier falling another 100 feet below me. Situated at a hairpin turn which also served as an outpost for Colombian military personnel keeping an eye on the road. I passed their little guard shack and pulled over on the scant sandy and damp miniscule "shoulder". I performed my kick-stand ritual and feeling happy and confident with my new interim kick-stand, I looked down at my feel and noticed it was gone. It vibrated loose and fell off.
    </p><p>
    So much for my interim kick-stand and two dollars.
    </p><p>
    It was funny before, but now I was frustrated. This minor inconvenience was haunting me. I just sat there and took in the scenery. Then buried my helmet in my hands and sighed. Soon two of soldiers from the military oupost were standing next to the bike. I showed them the kick stand and then asked if they could bind a decent rock that I could perch my bike on so I could get off and take a picture. One hobbles down the steep cliff returning with a nice flat rock perfect for my needs.

    After the usual diatribe, they take me on a walking tour of the waterfall and offer me tips for the next leg of my journey. Hiking through the jungle, I convince them to take a picture of me under the waterfall using their automatic weapon as a prop. And they agreed! With my hand on the trigger, the younger cop cautions me, so I adjust my grip so there are no accidents. Hiking back to the bike they want to pose again with my motorcycle before our tearful goodbyes.
