South America and Antarctica 7 - Iguazu Falls - Upper Trail

Besides the Devil's Throat, there are two main trails at the Iguazu Falls park.  The upper trail, takes one along the top of the different falls.  The lower trail, the bottom. 
We took the upper trail first, which took us along the top of a line of falls that easily had to be a mile long.  As I mentioned before, Niagara Falls wouldn't even be noticed in this place.
What follows is a series of images that represent the sorts of things that caught my eye for still shots in the same general area as the video.

I'm going to request your indulgence for the image above and the ones that follow. I normally only show one image of a specific location that I have visited.  However, here, there were so many different ways to shoot this place that I couldn't help myself. I simply had to show you more than one. Please forgive me.

From general to specific, there are many different ways a place can be photographed.

Trails between the different falls had the most wonderful plant life along the way.

Here we are at the very top of another set of falls.

When I zoom in from another angle, we can more easily see that the falls continue on past the view point below, which turns out to be only half way down the canyon.  Taking photographs here was like that potato chip commercial where they dare you to try and eat just one.  I couldn't help myself.  I just had to keep shooting.

Then we walked around another corner and saw this plant along our trail.  I no idea what it is but one has to admire its spirit of purpose.

Around yet another corner were two falls in another small canyon, that from this perspective appear to merge into one, but were in fact separate when viewed straight on.
