Visiting The Pearson's Falls in NC

The small path is guiding us up to the falls, we are surrounded with all those beautiful colors of green


It worth's the sweat you had on the way up to this point, to see this pretty scene of nature. The falls had not that much water as usual because of the high drought they have just now, allover in NC.


A pretty "mini" fall, seen crossing the small bridge
on the way up there

Pretty light...


To walk the way down was much easier. It was a very nice experience of the day to see this Pearson's Falls, a true treasure of mother nature.



Read here more about the Pearson's Falls:

Pearson's Falls Glen is the remarkable botanical wonderland that lies hidden in these great Blue Ridge Mountains. It was named for the young engineer Charles William Pearson who discovered the falls area while scouting for passage through the mountains for what was to be the Southern Railroad. A military man, farmer, and an engineer, Captain Pearson bought the glen as part of a large tract of land that he wanted for his family. For years he and his heirs allowed generations of young people to picnic on the great stone table-rock that you will see at the foot of the falls. Botanists and bird-fanciers from all over the country have come to discover and catalog the wonders of this glen area.

Susanne, I really like the stream photo's
and the falls. These are very well done
and turn the subject matter into works of
art. I like the light on the green leaves.
Nice series.
