The falls are fed by a small creek and the flow is variable. In very dry spells, the flow is a mere trickle. Recent rains provided a very good flow.
The recessed area continues in the rocks to the right of the falls.
The water at the top of the falls glistens in the sun.
The trail to Moore's Cove follows the creek that created the falls above.
Huge rocks are found throughout the forest. This one is totally covered in moss and has a small bush growing from the top.
Bushes grow in the limited soil on top of this outcropping.
I love this formation. At the base is a cave large enough for several people.
The weekend weather was perfect for being outdoors after several days of rain. Today, like most of the country, we are expecting a major change with a cold front threatening to bring a hard freeze. We have our fingers crossed that the sub-freezing temperatures are not sufficiently low and sustained to damage the fruit trees. And it seems the TarHeels will be having SNOW for their game tonight! Hasn't this been a wonderful tournament? I can't wait for the game which promises to be a great one regardless of the outcome. Of course, I will sleep better if the 'Heels win.
