    Bridal Veil Falls N.C.

    My wife and I took to the mountains this last weekend to see what the massive rains did to the waterfalls in the area. We headed up to Highlands, North Carolina but the most direct route through Sky Valley was closed due to washout so we headed up to Franklin just west of Highlands intending to take highway 64 next to the Cullasaja Gorge to see the falls, but just short of our destination we had to detour onto a parallel road, Buck Creek Road, that took us into Highlands from the backside. We found 64 on that end and headed west. Our first stop was at Bridal Veil Falls, a long time tourist stop on the side of the road. We found that a very large chunk of the clifftop has come down on the loop road, blocking it and changing the scenery drastically. Personally I think it looks better than that strip of asphalt. Theres a shot of before to compare along with a good view of the change.
    The other falls we saw is on film I haven't got to yet, post later.

    Gary,

    Thanks for the update. Western NC is a part of the world very close to my soul.

    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.

    More shots from the trip to NC. One is Stonewall Falls near Clayton found in flood, the other is Cullasaja Gorge Falls flooded with a color view unflooded to give some perspective on the event. Mind you Cullasaja was shot from more than a hundred yards away so the power of that torrent is something else.

    We live in the Atlanta area. Give me a heads up when you hit the road and we might be able to get together if you intend to go to the Franklin/Highlands area, which is about a two hour drive from the house. Where in So. Carolina will you be?
