Gullfoss (translated as "Golden Falls") may be Iceland's most popular waterfall, and we can certainly testify to that statement given how it was always busy during our visits. This was in part because it was one of three major attractions on the Golden Circle Route (or Tour) that included Geysir and Þingvellir as a very doable day trip out of Reykjavík. Nonetheless, the waterfall's popularity was well-deserved because it was one of the more unique ones we've seen. In fact, we thought it was both spectacular and memorable enough to earn a spot on our World's Top 10 Waterfalls List.
What made Gullfoss stand out to us was that it featured two distinct drops in succession at right angles to each other while spanning the entire width of the Hvítá River. Adding to the scenic allure was that the river flowed wildly and freely so it could be experienced in all seasons as each season would yield very different moods and appearances. Our visit happened to be during the Summer so it produced beautiful rainbows in its wafting mist when the afternoon sun came out. The glacial coloring of the river also became very apparent when the sun came out as well.
The upper drop was said to have a height of 11m while the lower drop was said to have a drop of 21m for a total cumulative drop of 32m high. However, when the falls was viewed from the main overlooks near the visitor facilities, the lower drop fell into a narrow gorge creating the illusion that the waterfall would plunge into an abyss. That effect made the falls appear higher than its modest height would suggest.

Yosemite National Park spans eastern portions of Tuolumne, Mariposa and Madera counties in the central eastern portion of the U.S. state of California. The park, which is managed by the National Park Service, covers an area of 1,168.681 sq miles and reaches across the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain chain. Over 3.7 million people visit Yosemite each year, most spend the majority of their time in the seven square miles of Yosemite Valley. Designated a World Heritage Site in 1984, Yosemite is internationally recognized for its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, giant sequoia groves, and biological diversity. Almost 95% of the park is designated wilderness. Yosemite was central to the development of the national park idea. First, Galen Clark and others lobbied to protect Yosemite Valley from development, ultimately leading to President Abraham Lincoln's signing the Yosemite Grant in 1864. Later, John Muir led a successful movement to establish a larger national park encompassing not just the valley, but surrounding mountains and forests as well—paving the way for the United States national park system.
