Taking a Tumble Dec 25, 2015
A gorgeous and easily accessible waterfall in western North Carolina. The falls are wondrous any time of year, though the name owes to an added touch that occurs in winter. Since Looking Glass Falls is framed by rock walls (it sits in a gorge), frigid temperatures will create icy sides that render a huge mirror. I have not been here to witness the magnificent reflections, but I’ve heard it is remarkable.

Perhaps a secondary reason for visiting in colder seasons is that water flow is generally better. We visited in December, and while global warming seemed to veto any mirrors, recent robust rainfall had this sucker gushing mightily. Really was impressive to witness the powerful flow down a roughly sixty foot drop.

There are no facilities here, but a fairly long pull off offers easy parking and the falls lie right beside the roadway. A convenient stairway leads you to the bottom of the falls, where you are able to see and hear the power.

I usually avoid traveling to parks during the winter, but this looks like a pleasant exception.
