Serenity Sunday: Dry Falls

Just three weeks ago, while my brother was showing us around some of his favorite back roads in the Nantahala (nan-ta-HAY-la) National Forest near the town of Highlands in western North Carolina, I was able to re-visit a place on the Cullasaja River that I first saw several years ago.  The name is a bit of a conundrum, but it has a rather logical origin:  it’s called Dry Falls because one can walk from one side to the other behind the falls without getting (very) wet, at least when the waterflow is low; actually, there’s quite a bit of spray even then, but it’s still a memorable experience and well worth the modest hike to get down to it from the road that passes nearby (US 64).

    Such a beautiful place. I can well imagine walking behind the water just for the fun of it, but the vantage point you’ve chosen certainly does it justice.

      Yes, the vantage point is critical here, as with many natural wonders that are visited by so many and so often photographed. It’s always a challenge to try to find a fresh perspective that reflects our own impressions. Thanks for letting me know that you like mine, Vicki!
