With all the rain we've had lately, if you happen to be in the area of Franklin, NC...the waterfalls along the Cullasaja River gorge (US 64 towards Highlands, NC) are spectacular right now!

Well...pictures can't really do them justice, but I did finally get still photos and short videos posted on my waterfall blog:

I've never seen Bridal Veil Falls more than a thin curtain, even when other nearby falls were going pretty good.

Thanks for the pics & vids!

"I've never seen Bridal Veil Falls more than a thin curtain, even when other nearby falls were going pretty good."

Me either!  The one that really amazed me though was "Dry Falls" - yeah, right...dry!  I had told the friends with me that I could walk down far enough to get pictures of them behind the falls.  Forget that!  Couldn't even see them through the water...normally you can.

"Thanks for the pics & vids!"

You're certainly welcome.  I've been wanting to rush around and visit all the falls I know about before the water levels go down, but it's a tad hard to fit 478 falls into a few weeks...especially as I can't do any hiking right now (bad knee) so I'm going to have to settle for the ones that are more or less roadside...or a very short hike.

I bet the falls on the Horsepasture River are quite a sight!

Years ago you could park roadside for a relatively short hike past Turtleback to Rainbow, but now it's a longer hike from the Gorges TH.
