Over at least 2000 years, the Falls have receded 8 km upstream, as the Zambezi River carved its way through seven gorges. This geological history can be seen in the dark basalt in the series of rocky gorges below the Falls. It is believed that the Devil's Cataract, which is presently the lowest point of Victoria Falls, will eventually become the next gorge as the river continues to cut its way back upstream.
Essentially, the river falls into a gorge directly in front of the Falls, and then flows through a narrow cutting. You can view the Falls straight on from across the gorge."

The next morning after breakfast, it was time for one more group photo before we hit the road.
Colonel Bogey March on their sheepdog whistles. We heard that many times over the course of the safari. I wish I had taken a video of them in the airport. Great memories...thank you so much for the wonderful companionship.
creepy clown stuff currently going on.
Mount Katahdin continues. In the winter, when it is covered in snow, the lookout is closed. In summer, when it's open, it isn't nearly as breathtaking. Still a pretty view though...
