Photographer's Note

Here we have a view in close up of the base of that falls I posted yesterday. Interesting how grown men are transformed in little kids when face a place like this.
The rocks around of these falls are very curious, there is a base of sandstone, created when this region was a desert, and a layer of volcanic stones in the upper side, at same time you can see plants of a subtropical forest and some cacti that are part of the ancient desert that survived even today.
This place is located near Faxinal town, inside a guest-farm.
These guy are surrounded by big volcanic stones that came down from the upper side.

Temos aqui uma vista em close up da base da cachoeira que postei ontem. Acho curioso como homens crescidos se transformam em meninos quando se deparam com um local como este.
As rochas ao redor desta cachoeira são bem curiosas, a base é de arenito, herança dos tempos em que a região era um deserto, já o topo é coberto por uma camada de basalto vulcânico. A vegetação é subtropical e úmida, mas nos paredões ainda sobrevivem cactus que são herança dos tempos do deserto.
Esta cachoeira está próxima da cidade de Faxinal e faz parte de um hotel-fazenda.
