Elk Falls


We took a journey
to see a waterfall
this weekend.
This is Elk Falls
of Elk Park, N.C.
It is a 65 foot
drop to the
bottom
(Larger than it
looks here!)
Top:
A rocky outcropping
overhead along
the way. The path
to reach this was
less than 1/4 mile!
Next Several:
Close-ups of the
water and humongous
boulders surrounding
the fall, including
my favorite; 'Water
through Red-leafed
Trees.'
Next Two:
The falls itself
with the water
basin below. This
falls basin is swimable.
Bottom:
The mountainous
view along the
way (down.)

Come on along!
:) :)

  2. Sixty-five feet is a lot! More than a six story building. And what a drop that is. Gorgeous! That just looks so incredibly tempting - did you swim?

  3. Talon~ My daughter swam; I did not this time (almost did it was so hot.) :) I have some great shots coming (I hope) of others JUMPING from the very TOP (wild teenagers with a death wish or something.) It was hard to watch.
