Here are 12 of my favorite waterfalls which we saw for the first time in 2009... This was a hard decision also since we have seen so many... I tried to pick out smaller ones in addition to the large ones. The highlight of our year when it comes to hiking and 'waterfalling' had to have been in October when we visited Tallulah Gorge (GA) for the second time. I have included THREE of those fabulous waterfalls in this list. Above is L'EAU D'OR FALLS (which means "Water of Gold" in French). Below are eleven more of my favorites, in no particular order.
BRASSTOWN VEIL FALLS (Oconee County, SC)
MIDDLE DESOTO FALLS (Desoto Falls Recreation Area, north of Turner's Corner, GA)
HURRICANE FALLS (Tullulah Gorge, GA)
SLICK ROCK FALLS (near Brevard, NC)
CHEOAH FALLS (Fontana Village, NC)
GARVAN GARDENS CASCADES (near Hot Spring, AR)
MACHINE FALLS (near Manchester, TN)
PANTHER FALLS (Rabun Beach Recreation Area, GA)
TEMPESTA FALLS (Tallulah Gorge, GA)
SERENITY FALLS (Cosby, TN)
UPPER BIG BRANCH FALLS (near Erwin, TN)
We saw several other gorgeous waterfalls (such as Ozone Falls near us here on the Cumberland Plateau, and also Dry Falls and Looking Glass Falls in North Carolina) this year--but we had seen them in previous years, so I did not include them in this list.
Hope you enjoyed our 2009 Waterfalls, as much as we have enjoyed sharing them.
