First day in Rosman NC-hiking to waterfalls

Map picture

Using the Lazy J C.G as our base for the next few days we took off with Mary & Loren that know the area very well to a day hike along Hwy 281 South towards S.Carolina.

The great weather,curvy roads ,mountains and green all around made it a fantastic drive all along.

Our first stop was at the Upper White water Falls just .5 mile hike and what a beautiful powerful falls it is,we love to hike to waterfalls and never seem to have enough of this magnificent power of nature.

We continued towards the beautiful Gorges S.P and hiked 3 quite stressful miles to Rainbow falls,the hike was along Horse pasture River with many small falls on the way including one that is used as a slide for brave people to plunge into the cold water of the river.

Just been reading all of your last posts. You are doing great and having lots of fun. Seems to me that you are very much attracted to waterfalls. Stay safe and between the ditches!
