把梦想变成现实! Don't just dream it, stream it!

龙瀑布,委内瑞拉

荒野的中心地带,一个令人敬畏的景象从上倾泻而下,这就是委内瑞拉的丘伦梅鲁瀑布!该瀑布也被称为龙瀑布,位于奥扬特普伊山峡谷南端的一个狭长地带,在雨季会与一条邻近的溪流相连。今天的图片展示的正是丘伦梅鲁瀑布从约1300英尺的高处倾泻而下。委内瑞拉拥有一些令人印象深刻的世界自然奇观,其中包括地球上最高的瀑布,也就是位于丘伦梅鲁以南约4英里处的天使瀑布。詹姆斯·安吉尔发现了天使瀑布,但人们常常误以为他发现了龙瀑布,佐证这一说法的证据是天使瀑布常常被误认为是龙瀑布。因此,无论您是在寻找天使瀑布还是龙瀑布,委内瑞拉都有适合您的瀑布!

Churún Merú waterfall in Venezuela

In the heart of the wilderness, an awe-inspiring sight plummets from a mountain—the Churún Merú waterfall in Venezuela. Also known as Dragon Falls, the cascade featured in today's image is in a narrow niche at the southern end of the canyon that divides the mountain of Auyán-tepui. Falling from around 1,300 feet, Churún Merú is joined by a neighboring stream in the wet season. Venezuela is home to some of the world's most impressive natural wonders, including the highest waterfall on Earth, Angel Falls, found some 4 miles south of Churún Merú. So, whether you're after angels or dragons, Venezuela has a waterfall for you!

世界新七大自然奇观之一

伊瓜苏大瀑布,巴拉那州

伊瓜苏大瀑布以其宏伟且独特的美景吸引着游客,是南美洲最令人印象深刻的自然宝藏之一。这个壮观的瀑布位于巴西和阿根廷的交界处,不仅是一个不可错过的旅游景点,也是全球公认的瑰宝。1986年,伊瓜苏大瀑布被联合国教科文组织评为世界遗产,并被世界新七大奇迹基金会评选为世界七大自然奇观之一。

瀑布所在的伊瓜苏国家公园是一个广阔的环境保护区,拥有丰富的生物多样性。在公园的小径和人行道上游览时,游客有机会目睹各种野生动物,包括美洲豹、水豚和各种热带鸟类。

尽情地嬉戏玩水吧! Get your splash on

瓦克莱拉瀑布,俄勒冈州

在俄勒冈州一处狭缝型峡谷的尽头,有一个特别的地方正等待着徒步旅行者去探索:瓦克莱拉瀑布。其水源来自哥伦比亚河的支流坦纳河,这个瀑布的名字是由马扎马登俱乐部的成员以美国原住民村庄的名字命名的。走到步行道的尽头,游客可以观赏到壮观的两级瀑布,水流从350英尺高的地方坠落到下面的水潭中,而这个水潭正是一个绝佳的玩水、纳凉胜地,当你在里面游泳的时候,可别忘了留意附近的水鸫(也被称为美洲河乌),这是一种以瀑布为家的鸟类。人们可以看到它们沿着溪流飞翔,偶尔也会潜入水中。

Wahclella Falls, Oregon

Nestled in the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon, there's something special awaiting hikers: the Wahclella Falls. Fed by Tanner Creek, a tributary of the Columbia River, these waterfalls were named after a Native American village by members of the Mazama Mountaineering Club. At the end of a trail, visitors can see the spectacular two-tiered cascade that crashes down 350 feet into a pool below, which is the perfect place to take a dip and cool off. While you're swimming, keep an eye out for the water ouzel—also known as the American dipper—a species of bird that lives here. They can be spotted flying along the stream and occasionally diving into the water.

一个天然的矛盾体 A natural oxymoron

优胜美地国家公园的火瀑布

想亲眼目睹炙热的“火瀑布”吗?您没有听错,在优胜美地国家公园里就看到这样一个不可思议的景象。“火瀑布”是季节性瀑布,在季和早春时节,当降量充足且气温升高到足以融化积雪时,瀑布就会流下来。在二月份的几个星期里,如果天气晴朗,水流正常,而阳照射的角度又恰到好处时,这条细长的瀑布就会呈现出火焰般的光彩。每年这个时候,会有上百名游客聚集在优胜美地山谷观赏这一奇特迷人的自然景象,谷里人挤人,连找位置观赏都是一种挑战。有趣的是,这种自然现象被称为“火瀑布”,也是对历史上著名的“优胜美地国家公园火瀑布”的致敬,在1872年至1968年,公园里举办过“人造火瀑布”活动,主办方将余火未尽的木块、煤块推到悬崖下,在黑夜中形成一道炽热亮眼的“火瀑布”。随着时间的推移,公园管理员逐渐认识到这不是一个明智的主意,最终取消了这一活动。

Yosemite National Park, California

Fancy witnessing a fiery waterfall? The seemingly impossible can be found at this time of year on the eastern side of El Capitan, Yosemite National Park's famous rock face. Horsetail Fall is a seasonal waterfall that flows only when there has been plenty of snowfall, and when temperatures have been warm enough to melt it. For a couple of weeks in February, if skies are clear, water is flowing, and the sun shines at just the right angle, the long, slender waterfall takes on a glowing, flame-hued appearance. Hundreds gather in Yosemite Valley to see this mesmerizing natural spectacle. The phenomenon has earned the moniker 'firefall,' an homage to the historic Yosemite Firefall, a manmade event from the top of the park's Glacier Point that took place between 1872 to 1968. Eventually, park rangers decided that dumping embers over a cliff onto the land below wasn't the brightest idea.

戈林格瀑布,萨尔茨堡,奥地利

从桀骜不驯的萨尔扎霍芬峡谷到世界上最古老的哈莱因盐矿,再到世界上最大的埃斯瑞森韦尔特,奥地利拥有众多奇观。萨尔茨堡州的戈林格瀑布无疑也是其中之一,这条平缓温和的瀑布,高249英尺,包含两条大瀑布,其中一条从施瓦茨巴赫瀑布洞口倾泻而下,汇入宁静如画的水潭。在这里,一年四季都能见到极致的美景,春日绿成荫,冬日皑皑。自1985年以来,该地区就被列为奥地利的自然保护区,无论你是喜欢徒步旅行、摄影,还是想拥抱大自然,这里都是一个绝佳的旅游目的地。

Golling Waterfall, Salzburg, Austria

This chilly scene captures Austria's stunning Golling Waterfall, less than 20 miles south of the city of Salzburg. Tumbling down in two stages from the mouth of the Schwarzbachfall cave, the 249-foot fall is a sight to behold in every season—whether it's framed by the lush greenery of spring or the icy embrace of winter. This region is known for its natural wonders and is also home to the world’s biggest ice cave, Eisriesenwelt, and the narrow Salzachöfen Gorge, considered to be the birthplace of white-water kayaking. Whether you are into hiking, photography, or just looking to spend some quality time in nature, this is a great Austrian destination.

瀑布变“瀑” Waterfalls turned waterfreeze

十六湖国家公园,克罗地亚

想不想一次性游览16个湖泊?克罗地亚的十六湖国家公园是该国最大、最古老的湖泊之一,其独特的地质特征为你提供了一个机会。马拉卡佩拉、梅德韦克和普列谢维察山脉坡将水引入普利特维采高原。这些水携带着沉淀的石灰岩,随着时间的推移,石灰岩逐渐积聚和硬化,形成了一系列被称为凝灰岩的岩石屏障。这些屏障形成水潭,细长的边瀑布从一个“湖”通往另一个“湖”。这种雄伟的地质和水文景观也是联合国教科文组织认定的的世界遗产,它们吸引了超过一百万的游客前来参观蜿蜒于湖中的小径和木板路。即使在季,湖泊仍然美貌依旧,曾经咆哮的瀑布被冰封在原地形成绝美冰瀑。

Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia

Why visit one lake when you can visit 16? Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia serves up stunning terraced lakes connected to one another by more than 90 cascades and waterfalls, thanks to the unique geology of the area.

The surrounding mountains funnel water carrying calcium carbonate into the park. This accumulates and hardens over time into a type of limestone called tufa, which creates a series of barriers. These natural dams form pools, with thin, lacy waterfalls leading from one 'lake' to another. This majestic display draws more than a million visitors a year to the paths and boardwalks that wind through the lakes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Even in winter, the lakes retain their beauty, with once-roaring waterfalls frozen in place.

达尔达尼亚瀑布,博洛尼亚

在艾米利亚-罗马涅大区的众多奇观中,达尔达尼亚瀑布无疑是引人注目的。达尔达尼亚瀑布的名字来源于一条同名的溪流,该溪流在海拔250米的高差上形成了七个壮观的瀑布,其中最高的落差约为30米。该瀑布靠近圣母玛利亚圣殿,其壮丽的风景吸引了无数游客。流经数公里后,达尔达尼亚溪流汇入利奥,随后流入帕纳罗河,而帕纳罗河又是更大的河流——波河的一条支流。由于水质纯净,达尔达尼亚溪流是许多鱼类的栖息地,如褐鳟鱼和蓝鳟鱼。

大自然的威严 Nature's majesty awaits!

杜鲁门斯堡的州立托格汉诺克瀑布公园,纽约州

托格汉诺克瀑布公园位于纽约风景秀丽的手指湖区,是由流入卡尤加的溪流侵蚀雕刻而成的自然奇迹。这座美丽的公园不仅是托格汉诺克瀑布的所在地,还有迷人的小径、独特的岩石和众多野生动物。“托格汉诺克”这个名字的起源不明,但主流观点认为它结合了易洛魁语和阿尔冈昆语,大致的意思是“森林中的大瀑布”。该公园始建于1924年,在这里你既可以沿着小径徒步,欣赏瀑布和岩石的全貌,也可以在卡尤加湖潜水,亦或是带一副双筒望远镜观鸟。如果你的目足够敏锐,就可以观测到火鸟、潜鸟以及大角鸮等当地鸟类。

Taughannock Falls State Park

Taughannock Falls State Park, in New York's scenic Finger Lakes area, is home to this magnificent waterfall of the same name, which plunges 215 feet over the cliffs into the gorge below. The park also boasts stunning pathways, unique rock formations, and numerous wild animals. It's not certain where the name Taughannock came from, though a leading theory says it is a combination of Iroquois and Algonquin terms, roughly translating to 'great fall in the woods.' The park, which was founded in 1924, guarantees visitors memorable adventures, whether you hike the rim paths for panoramic views of the falls and rock formations, take a plunge in Cayuga Lake, or bring a pair of binoculars for birding. A keen eye can spot winged locals such as turkey vultures, common loons, and great horned owls.

黄石下瀑布,怀俄明州,美国

虽然夏天即将结束,但现在收拾好装备,去户外探险还为时不晚。不知道该去哪里?那就去美国看看63个国家公园吧!1916年的今天,时任美国总统伍德罗·威尔逊签署《国家公园管理局组织法》,正式成立国家公园管理局,旨在“保护自然景观、野生动植物和历史遗迹,在供人们休闲娱乐的同时,不得破坏这些场所,并将之传诸后代”。无论是哪里的美景,只有小心呵护才能让这份美丽得以延续。

National Park Service anniversary

Though summer is winding down, it's not too late to pack some gear and head into the great outdoors. Unsure where to go? Look no further than our 63 national parks, which exist thanks to the National Park Service, created on this day in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson. He ordered the service to preserve the landscape, wildlife, and history of the parks 'in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.' In other words, the park service was established for all of us! Just make sure that whether you're visiting the islands of American Samoa, the glaciers of the North Cascades, the waterways of the Everglades, or the 308-foot Lower Falls of Yellowstone in today's image, that you explore them with care and appreciation so that they can be preserved for centuries to come.

斯科加瀑布,

今天照片里的是冰岛的斯科加瀑布,它是冰岛最大的瀑布之一,有82英尺宽,垂直落差约200英尺。游客经常能在这里看到彩虹,甚至是双彩虹。传说,第一个踏足冰岛的维京人曾把一个宝箱藏在了斯科加瀑布后面,这又为这个瀑布增添了一丝神秘色彩。

这个瀑布在很多热门影视作品中都出现过,比如《雷神:黑暗世界》《慷慨的心》《权力的游戏》等等。瀑布附近还有一个斯科加博物馆,可以让人们了解冰岛的文化遗产。

Skógafoss waterfall, Iceland

Behold Skógafoss, one of Iceland’s largest waterfalls. This powerful cascade measures 82 feet across and drops 200 feet over what were once the sea cliffs of the country’s southern coast. The coastline receded seaward, but the cliffs remained, leaving behind this natural wonder, powered by water from two glaciers. Skógafoss, which translates as 'forest waterfall,' is frequently graced with single or double rainbows, formed by the refraction of sunlight through the mist. Legend has it that a treasure chest is hidden behind Skógafoss, left there by a Viking settler named Prasi Porolfsson.

The waterfall has appeared on the big screen, in 'Thor: The Dark World' and the Bollywood movie 'Dilwale,' as well as on TV in the final season of 'Game of Thrones.' The Skógar Museum, which offers insights into Iceland's cultural heritage, sits near the waterfall in Skógar village.
