Natural waterfalls are beautiful and very unique. They are usually made by a natural process. Over centuries the land below the water source begin an erosive process that causes the layers and rocks to make different formation. Some of the layers will fluff off into the water source which will create the different peaks and levels that you see with waterfalls cascade from.
