Pailon del Diablo Waterfall, Ecuador

At first it’s lovely to notice that the staircase adjacent to these waterfalls was designed to blend in with the tropical landscape. But consider the name—in English, the Devil’s Cauldron—and the evil tricks the steep steps can play. They are made of smooth, oversize pebbles that provide little traction, and when you're looking down, they blend together, creating an optical illusion of a stone slide. They’re also slippery from the constant mist from the falls and even though there’s a metal railing to save you from any spills—don’t count on that too much—it too is drenched with water droplets.

the stairways build around Niagara Falls have been allowed to fall away [altho some parts still exist] because they were deemed too dangerous. One went into the caves behind the falls.

you can pick your friends... you can pick your nose .... but you can NEVER pick your friend's nose !!

MAKE EVERY DAY COUNT!

Yes Simon, I too think it would be awesome to see it for real.

Walkabout, when I was a little girl I remember my parents taking me to Niagara Falls, and I barely remember going behind the falls, and the ride on the boat. Wish I had been older to appreciate it more.
