Looking Glass Falls

While staying at the close by Mt Pisgah Inn, I could not help but take a short drive from the BRP down Highway 276. Looking Glass Falls is one of my favorites and possibly the most accessible waterfall in North Carolina. Named after the 1700 ft monolith known as Looking Glass Rock, Looking Glass Creek falls 65 feet over an impressive rock ledge to form this natural wonder. It’s accessibility, along with it’s beauty and power make it high not only on my list, but many,many others as well. If you go on weekends, prepare for company. This picture was taken on Memorial Day Weekend. How I was able to get a single shot without a person in it is beyond me! Enjoy!

I gave up the video game playing, TV watching lifestyle years back now. There just had to be more to life. I discovered a love for waterfalls on Christmas day 2008, at Elk River Falls in Elk Park NC. While not initially realizing it, this opened a whole new world, and lifestyle for me. I now love to spend my free time, hiking to waterfalls, and mountain tops in search of pristine views. This has also led me to a love of photography and blogging. While i am still not an expert at either several years in to this, I love the challenges that both offer me. I see my skills getting better at both as time goes by. Sharing what I see via social media brings me great joy. I love the feedback, good and bad. I love to see what others are able to show as well. I created my blog "WaterfallsHiker", originally to just help myself keep up with my travels, not really with any real purpose in mind. After 2 years on this blog, I see that It has evolved into a combination of an information site, and a place to show off my progress as an amateur photographer. I try to do it all and include some bits of my personality as well. It is something I really enjoy doing. When I am not working on this hobby, I can be found on a golf course, spending time with my beautiful fiance and her daughter, or working my 40 hours a week at Costco.
