Who has the Best Waterfalls? Iceland vs Oregon

When you talk to people that have travelled to Iceland, one of the first things they rave about is all the incredible waterfalls Iceland has to offer. And as we witnessed first hand last October, they are spectacular. But here in Oregon we are no stranger to breathtaking waterfalls either. So we decided to do a little comparison. Who has the most spectacular waterfalls… Oregon or Iceland.
