April 28 - Auyantepui



Auyantepui is located in Bolivar, Venezuela and has a distinct heart shape.



I hope y'all find it as amazing as I do and happy Sunday!

Heart shaped?

OK, Auyantepui is the mountain/plateau, not the waterfall, and looks heart shaped from above.
The waterfall is Angel Falls, named after a bush pilot who crashed on Auyantepui.

Well not like a real heart but like our ridiculous drawings of them. You don't see it?



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Apr 28 12:38 PM

See it? No. I see the waterfall, and a map of Venezuela which I guess is sort of heart shaped. But it's Auyantepui, the mountain/plateau that's supposed to be heart shaped, and I can't find a picture of that.

Oh wait, here it is. This is the mountain/plateau. I've put an arrow to Angel Falls.



morethanpretty  Sunday Apr 28 12:46 PM

Oh shit, I put up the wrong pic I didn't mean to do that one.



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Apr 28 12:48 PM

No problem, I'm a little slow, but I've got it now.



morethanpretty  Sunday Apr 28 12:53 PM

I fixed it so now you look like the dumbass, ha!

another view of Angel Falls

Auyantepui is the name of the flat-topped mountain they call a tepui, Angel Falls is the waterfall (tallest in the world) shown here cascading from the top of the tepui. Here's another shot of it I took a couple years ago:

Wasn't really necessary, I manage to do that all by myself.

I thought that place looked familiar.



The heart-warming tale of UP, Pixar's latest 3D animation film about Mr Fredricksen, an old man who takes a balloon-powered flight in his house to South America, was inspired by locations just as magical and remote as those created in the film.

Angel Falls in Venezuela, the world's highest waterfall, which rises 979 m (3,212 ft) with a drop of about 807m (2,647 ft)... ..are clearly the inspiration for Paradise Falls, the location that Mr Fredricksen and his beloved Ellie dream of during the film.
