After climbing these very same waterfalls on Easter Sunday, my cousins Brad, Jonathan and myself decided it was time to make a return trip out to DuPont State Park in North Carolina. This time, however, we were joined by my brothers Scott and Justin and my cousin Caitie. We're a family of rebels, we do whatever we want when we want and we live life to the fullest. This being said, when we saw a sign warning hikers to stay on the hiking trail we naturally wandered off of the trail as soon as possible. We followed the river upstream stepping over branches and scaling rocks along the way. Together we are fearless and strong, willing to tackle anything, including the waterfalls that stood before us.
We determined that getting back down to the parking lot would be a lot easier using the walking trails rather than climbing down the falls. I have to say, the trails were harder than climbing the falls! They were steep, rough and wet from rain. I can't wait for my next visit to Nana's house so us kids can do this all over again.
