Watery Wednesday #105: High Falls

High Falls, DuPont State Forest, Brevard, North Carolina. May 10, 2009.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

DuPont State Forest between Hendersonville and Brevard, North Carolina, is a area of more than 10,000 acres of forest, trails and waterfalls.  Betsy and I have visited DuPont twice and have enjoyed visiting the waterfalls.  There are six major waterfalls in the forest and we have hiked to  four of them.

The picture above was taken in May, 2009, on our way back home from the beach.  High Falls is a steep cascade of about 100 feet.  The structure that can be seen above the falls is a covered bridge over the river.

We’ve enjoyed both of our visits to DuPont State Forest and, since there are still two waterfalls we haven’t seen, the chances are pretty good that we will be going back there.

  6. Kathy Ariano Says:

    This one is amazing! It looks more forceful (for want of a better word) than many of the others — this isn’t a gently flowing one, that one can get closer to? Beautiful just the same.
