DAY 7 (1 of 3) – LOWER TRAIL, PARQUE NACIONAL IGUAZU, ARGENTINA

There were four major trails in the national park: The Devil’s Throat, The Lower Trail, San Martin Island and the Upper Trail. Yesterday, we visited the Devil’s Throat and today we spent a full day on the other three.

Before we left the national park yesterday, we re-validated our ticket at the ticket office, so today we could get in the Argentine Iguazu National Park with 50% discount. We started the day from Lower Trail, a pleasant hike which took us to various lookouts of the falls at lower to mid level. The weather wasn’t as good as we hoped for, but at least it didn’t rain. We walked through some dense forests with breaks of glorious views to the falls. The beauty of the falls is overwhelming, in rain or shine.

    I showed your log to Joyce. She said the photos are beautiful. Obviously, I think so too.
