Shower Under A Waterfall: I’m Sorry, Where?

Another item crossed off: Shower Under A Waterfall — but, you guys, if you have this goal, do it in Hawaii… or somewhere equally WARM. I’m not that blonde; I was well aware that the waterfalls of Glacier National Park would be extremely cold… but was it worth it? Okay, yes. Yes, it was. And,…
