Some waterfalls in South America

We are back in the USA. We have a 4 hour layover in SLC so killing time in the airport Crown Room. (Hughie Lewis is killing time here also). Here is a quick post on some water falls we got to see. Above is a place called Monday Falls in Ciudad del Este. We had just left Iguazu Falls and stopped to see these also. The group is all the people that helped do the NRT course.
Iguazu Falls is one of the coolest waterfalls on earth. We got to see lots of rainbows this time. It was our second trip to see the falls.
On Saturday morning we went to the Itaipu Dam. We found out it is one of the seven modern wonders of the world. Great place to tour. We got to see one of the spillways open which apparently hardly ever happens. That is what you see in these two pictures.

Spectacular pic of the waterfalls! Did you take the second one, with the rainbows? Do you feel so lucky to be able to see all of these wonders of the earth?

Yes I took the waterfall picture. They are amazing falls and pictures do them no justice.
