Series on my trip to the CANASTRA MOUNTAIN RANGE - State of MINAS GERAIS - SOUTHEASTERN Region of BRAZIL - From June 15th to 17th, 2012 - # 004 !




CACHOEIRA DA CASCA D'ANTA (IV) !
CASCA D'ANTA WATERFALLS (IV) !

Falling for 186m, from the walls of CANASTRA MOUNTAIN RANGE's south rim, those waterfalls are really beautiful and one of the waterfalls in Brazil I always wanted to visit! It's really close to where the SÃO FRANCISCO RIVER is born and its waters are the ones that fall in that wonderful natural spot. The river then has a very long way to go up to its mouth, in the border of the States of ALAGOAS and SERGIPE, in the NORTHEASTERN Region of BRAZIL, being the longest river running only in the brazilian territory! Those falls are inside CANASTRA MOUNTAIN RANGE NATIONAL PARK, nearby the small village of SÃO JOSÉ DO BARREIRO, in the municipality of SÃO ROQUE DE MINAS!

It's sort of hard to take a picture of them because of the light. Sunlight, specially during fall/wintertime, barely reaches them!

The region is easily reached from many areas in Brazil's Southeastern Region, but once one gets there, most roads are unpaved which makes the whole trip much more adventurous!

Giving a break on my West & Chicago series, I go on posting pictures of that interesting place in my home Country!
