Bull Sluice



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Bull Sluice on the Chattooga Wild and Scenic River near Clayton, Georgia, is really a Class V whitewater rapid. But since it was included in one of our waterfall books, and since it definitely involves falling water, Betsy and I decided to check it out on our way to the beach. A pleasant hike through the woods led us to an overlook. We heard the roar of the water long before we came upon this view.

Very pretty. I suppose there's a fine line between rapids and waterfall. It looks enough like a waterfall to me. :))

I can hear the rushing water now. I'm thinking there's not much rafting going on there, looks like too many rocks.

Looks refreshing!
I think the water might be a little low for a very big raft but a kayak on the far side might work - but NOT for me. :)

That would be a crazy rapid to go over in a raft or kayak!
