Mingo Falls


(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Last January Betsy and I made a trip to Asheville, but a rock slide on the interstate forced us to come back home by way of back roads.  Although the trip was longer than it would have been, it had the advantage of allowing us to stop by Mingo Falls near Cherokee, North Carolina.

Beautiful shot, George. I think Doug and I visited this waterfall on one of our early trips to the Smokies. As I recall, it wasn't in a very pretty area...seems like we had to go through a trailer park to get there. But your picture makes it look worth any effort.

What a blessing you two were not near the rock slide. I tend to be concerned something will give way around you on one of your outings. Water can cause a lot of earth movement. Be careful.

A blessing in disguise!

Linda said...

All those knobbly-looking rock formations
that disperse the water in different directions make a spectacular cascade and a wonderful sight.
