A short way up river from the campground was Dry Falls. I went early in the morning, because a prior attempt in the afternoon found the parking lot packed. Early was a good choice, as no one was there yet, and the light was better for photos too.
Contrary to the name, the falls was anything but dry. Several streams fell over a ledge and down onto a rocky formation below. A series of steps went from the parking area down along the river with a couple of viewing spots along the way.
The walkway continued and went behind the falling waters and beyond for a short distance. Some of the surrounding trees were beginning to change to fall colors, which made for a beautiful scene.
Also, another short hop on the road got me to Bridal Veil Falls. It was right next to the road, with a very small area to pull off. Not a lot of water coming down; but perhaps, that was the reason for the veil monicker.
Camp: Nantahala NF-Van Hook Glade CG drycamp
Scene: Waterfalls, rocks
Note: This visit occurred in October.
You’ve captured the falls very well, and I especially like the first photo. They are all beautiful though.
Thank you. I just love, love waterfalls!
