I took these pictures from the north edge (and I mean edge!) of the falls. My brother, Kevin, who does not like heights did not like me near this edge at all. I must say that when we were on the south side I mentioned those 'crazy idiots across the way!' so I should have held my tongue. It certainly is different to view someone standing up so high on a tiny ledge from the opposite side, as opposed to being there. It truly is a very long way down. In my next posting you will see that we sat on this very edge in the Zambezi River.
This gorge, one of nine, is a very popular spot for rafting. This time of year it is fairly safe but gets very dangerous when there is more rainfall. I might not be real safe, if you look down at the bottom of the picture you can see how close to the edge I am standing, a little too close for comfort. It's a long long ways down!
