CACHOEIRA DO MACHADO II - NA ESTRADA ENTRE BUENO BRANDÃO (MINAS GERAIS) E SOCORRO (SÃO PAULO) !

"MACHADO II" WATERFALLS - ON THE ROAD BETWEEN THE TOWN OF BUENO BRANDÃO (IN THE STATE OF MINAS GERAIS) AND THE TOWN OF SOCORRO (IN THE STATE OF SÃO PAULO)!




During the week-end when I went to SOCORRO, I crossed the border between the STATES of SÃO PAULO and MINAS GERAIS and visited the town of BUENO BRANDÃO, known for its numerous waterfalls, located in the southernmost tip of the STATE OF MINAS GERAIS (SUL DE MINAS)!

I just had lunch in a typical restaurant there, took some pictures and went back to SOCORRO, because there was a local seasonal party going on there and the town was crowded with young people and families (so no rooms in any hotel)!

Besides that, no appropriate vehicle to discover all the waterfalls that could be found in that place, because they could only be reached by unpaved roads within quite long distances (I'm seriously thinking about buying this type of car soon)!

Fortunately, on my way back, that included some kilometers of unpaved road too, I could see those waterfalls and got closer to them. Not much water since we're in the dry winter season in our area!

I could see them from the road, turned left on an unpaved narrower road, stopped by somebody's rural property, asked an old man if I could enter in order to get closer to the falls and, allowed, did it so!
