    That's 741 feet from the rim to the riverbed -- the height of a 70-story skyscraper.

      You should've laid a dollar bill or Pepsi can next to it, for scale :o)

      That makes me want to quit my job and spend all my time looking for scenes like his around the world! The size is amazing, and it still looks like you could wade around in the rocky pools at the edge of the photo.
      Time to polish up my passport.

      I flew off the end of these falls in a Grumman Goose in 1954. At that time the only means of getting there I believe. Only person there was a guy who monitored the water level for the Bauxite Company (never saw him) An awesome thing to see and hear millions of gallons of water in motion. There was a story that a Yankie airman attempted to fly a Dakota behind the falls but I cannot vouch for the veracity of this statement.
