Catarata Tirol

August 30th, 2006

We went to see Catarata Tirol on our last evening in San Ramon.

The first pictures are of the little river running through the valley coming from the waterfall, where we had to walk to reach the waterfall.

It had been raining beforehand and was starting to rain a little more when we arrived. Due to this additional water the catarata was extremely powerful.
The air was full of water, and a thunderous wind was blowing down with the water, pushing us back so it was difficult to approach. I managed to get quite close and came back looking like I had been for a swim.

We had to leave pretty quickly as the water in the valley was starting to rise and we had to get to higher ground.
