Scenic Sunday # 38

The view from White Oak Mountain, North Carolina. May, 2008.

Betsy and I go to the beach each year and we try to arrange the trip to and from the beach in such a way that we can visit waterfalls on the way.

Last  year on the way back home we visited Shunkawauken Falls near Columbus, North Carolina.  Shunkawauken Falls is high up on White Oak Mountain and we found a pullout near the waterfall.

The waterfall was beautiful and we enjoyed our visit.  I may show the waterfall at a later time, but it is behind me as I took this picture of the beautiful western North Carolina countryside.  You can make out some of the buildings in the town of Columbus on the left side of this picture.

    Spectacular view! This annual trip to the beach must be quite the adventure with changes in scenery from the broad expanse of the ocean to the roar of mountain waterfalls to views like this.

    What an amazing vista! I hope we won’t get the cold weather that is predicted for this week. I know you are terribly worried about your beautiful rose bushes.
    Take care and enjoy your afternoon George.
