Argentina Part Tres: Iguazu National Park

Perhaps the most magical part of my trip to Argentina involved visiting Iguazu National Park, where the base of a basaltic plateau results in the most fantastic series of waterfalls amongst a subtropical rainforest.
(You can see all the photos here, on Flickr.)

This waterfall, known as the Devil's Throat, is terrifyingly powerful and results in perpetual rainbows. Is that a spiritual metaphor?

The park is home to over 300 varieties of butterflies with dazzling colors and patterns.

The falls can also be seen from Brazil and Paraguay, but I stayed on this side of the border.

Sneaky peak at some Argentine fashions... well, outdoorsy fashions.
