Watery Wednesday #136: Bass Pond Falls

Bass Pond Falls, Biltmore Estate, Asheville, North Carolina. March 14, 2011.

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.

As most of you know, Betsy and I find it hard to go any place without looking for a waterfall or two.  When we were at Biltmore in February we noticed a Waterfall Trail, but didn’t have time to check it out.  Last week we walked that trail and came to the waterfall shown above.

True, Bass Pond Falls is man-made.  The falls is formed by a dam built to create the bass pond.  But it is still a pretty 15-foot drop.

    This is very unusual, and I thought it looked man-made when i first saw it. It looks almost more like a shower than a waterfall!!! It does have it’s own beauty, but it’s too perfect and doesn’t really look like a waterfall to me. More like those walls of water in a doctor’s waiting room.
