TLC (the R&B legends, not the channel) have given us some great advice over the years. Don’t be too proud. Avoid scrubs. Creep. But I think I have to disagree with them when they say, “don’t go chasing waterfalls.” Waterfalls are great, and you should chase them whenever possible! Waterfalls come in all shapes and sizes, but they are universally mesmerizing. Whether it’s a haunting stream pouring down from a cave roof, like the Ruby Falls in Tennessee; a smaller water feature rushing through lush jungle greenery like Asik-Asik Falls in the Philippines; or a staggering display of natural power like the world famous Niagara Falls, every waterfall holds its own special kind of magic. Now tell us about the most incredible, unforgettable, and powerful waterfalls that you’ve ever encountered!
