Watery Wednesday: Falls on Reems Creek

Falls on Reems Creek, Lake Louise Park, Weaverville, North Carolina. January 31, 2012.

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.

When we travel, Betsy and I usually check to see if there are any waterfalls in the area to which we are travelling.  We went to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville at the end of January, and searching the internet told us a waterfall in nearby Weaverville, North Carolina.  So the morning after visiting Biltmore we travelled to Weaverville before heading home.

The Falls on Reems Creek are actually caused by a dam at the site of an old mill.  But it is still a pretty sight, and we were very happy to add this to our collection.

We were planning on seeing another new waterfall on the way home, but a rockslide on Interstate 40 closed the highway, so we had to go home by a different route.  That second waterfall will have to wait until we make another trip to Asheville.

    Gorgeous water color, George. One of your commenters said fiber optics. I was thinking spun sugar. 🙂 Have always wanted to see the Biltmore when it snows.
