Iguazu Falls [Suggest Edits]
This spectacular multi-tiered waterfall sits on the border between Argentina and Brazil. The falls is composed of a rip in the columnar basalt right at a bend in the river and drops over 250'. The result is that the waterfall creates a complete horseshoe shape.
Upon seeing the falls for the first time Eleanor Roosevelt proclaimed, "Poor Niagra." The National Parks on each side of the border are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
