Sometimes I do that: grab my car and go wherever it can take me, only for the day (Craziness, some would say)!

Yesterday (a holiday in the State of So Paulo), I went to the State of Rio de Janeiro, some 300km away from CAMPINAS, right in the border of the State of So Paulo, in the town of ITATIAIA, where the ITATIAIA NATIONAL PARK (The first Brazilian National Park) is located!

I really enjoyed getting in there, seeing some waterfalls and some mountaineous landscape!

Due to the lack of time, I could only visit the lower part of the park, where there are some small waterfalls! Here's one of them - the BRIDE'S VEIL - located at around 1,100 masl and pretty easily reached, by car and on foot, some 13km from the main entrance of the park!

In the ITATIAIA REGION some of the highest peaks in Brazil are located (some reaching more than 2,800 m of height!).
