Going for the waterfall
Whitewater Falls Travel Blog› entry 11 of 26 › view all entries
After a few days of old cities it is time to go for a bit of nature. Hence I start the morning by heading for a waterfall. Just at the border between North and South Carolina you will find the highest waterfall east of the Rockies. Ok it is no Niagara Falls but the highest waterfall sound like something I need to go see in the morning.
There are several roads which appear to lead straight to the fall hence I take the first of them - but after I have been driving about ten miles down the road I come to a sign where it tells me I got to a dead end - ups. But on the other hand maybe it is just a mistake and the road actually does lead to the waterfall. Hence I carry on down the dead road for another couple of miles - and then I get to a sign private no entry power plant - or something like that. Ok I better turn around now and go down the other road a bit further down the way I was driving.
After getting on the different road I get to the falls without any problems - and I pay the entry fee of 2$ that’s sounds sort of reasonable - its free if you got your annual card for all the national park’s which I don’t. Well I go in and walk the short trail to see the waterfall. And no Whitewater Falls is not Niagara Falls or Yosemite Falls - but it is still a nice waterfall. And there is a couple of different viewing platforms to observe it from plus a short little walk to and from the water fall.
