This gorge is known as one of the largest canyons in the Eastern US. It is 2 miles long, 1.2 mile between the two sides, and 1000 feet deep. The Tallulah River --which formed the canyon and passes through it, drops 500 feet in less than a mile --making for some spectacular waterfalls/cascades.
To get to the bottom of the canyon, we hiked down almost 550 steps ---and then of course, had those 550 steps BACK UP.... The going down was easy as you can imagine. About 80 feet from the bottom of the canyon, we crossed a suspension bridge before going on down to the bottom.
Hope you enjoyed seeing some photos from Tallulah Gorge taken on May 4, 2013. When our day was complete at the gorge, we had put about 4 miles on our pedometers.. Great exercise!!!!
Hope you have a wonderful day --and be sure and get out in nature and do some hiking!!!! It's good for you! See you on Monday!
