Flying into Guadalajara I glanced out the window to see a huge, wildly rocky landscape. The ragged land climbed upward where it seemed to top out in a plateau. The city started right at the edge of that plateau.
There were two huge waterfalls pouring down the steep cliffs at the edge of the city. We flew right over them. Apparently, each waterfall was 300 meters high and they are extremely beautiful from afar. Unfortunately, the water is dirty and if you get close the smell is horrendous.
While I’m not certain, I think this might be a satellite image of that waterfall. It’s on the northern end of the city.
Although I don’t seem to remember that church with the giant “IGLESIA!” sign on top. Let’s zoom in:
Hmm. I’ll have to check and see if I notice the falls on the flight out tomorrow. 8:30am flight! woo!
