A Visit to Dry Falls


Dry Falls is located in Macon County, NC just north of Franklin, NC

I visited Dry Falls yesterday afternoon to check out the waterfall and see what it looked like after a quick couple of inches of rain had fallen.


The waterfall looked completely different than when I had last visited in July of 2009. A couple of videos from that visit is below for your comparison:












I took a number of photos and here are a few of them, roll your mouse over the photos for a description:

I have to admit that I was rather pleased when he dropped his camera and it bounced into the water. Maybe he will learn from that experience not to leave the beaten path

I enjoyed this little excursion to the southern end of Macon County, and would like to visit the falls in the winter time to get a look at the icicles...but I very seriously doubt that I'll ever brave Highway 28 in that kind of weather. I'll leave that task to other, braver, people. ʘ‿ʘ
