Nobody does fake rocks better than Vegas.
box canyon in ouray, colorado is an exquisite canyon filled with a jumbled mess of old mining equipment, pipes to hot springs, and metal walkways… of course they’ve turned it into a tourist attraction
the best thing about climbing into the canyon is the noise… the falls, which are hidden behind a rock wall, are so loud that you can’t have a conversation with somebody right next to you
Under the Arizona Falls is this suspicious drinking fountain.
To drink or not to drink?
Artificial falls in the middle of the AZ Canal. Very weird place with cool water that is fun to photograph.
The strange and incredibly humid Lied Jungle at the Omaha Zoo with its fake waterfalls and realistically painted trees (Tim!) and cement catwalks. The alga and mold are now taking over and the paint is fading, giving the place a strange Le Corbusier post-apocalyptic vibe. Also, it seems to attract a lot of moms wearing track shoes and pushing strollers. Very weird place.
The most photographed falls in Florida…
Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls
Nice fake-rocks and waterfalls at Orlando Marriott. I really liked the planters on top with palm trees. I’m waiting for somebody to build an entire resort out of this stuff… maybe in Abu Dhabi… and it should be 150 floors…
An unnatural arch. In the bottom left corner, it has a phone built into it.
Why drive to Wyoming and wait three hours for Old Faithful when you can get a fast pass to Grizzly River Run? It’s got geysers, steam channels, hot pots, and then they strap you to a plastic chair and send you down a fake waterfall.
