Hurricane Falls

Took my first steps into Tallulah Gorge on Fathers Day! What a beautiful place! At least 5 waterfalls and a very, very deep gorge. They say Linville Gorge is the deepest in the east, I am not sure after this place. It can not be by much. Anyway, the highlight waterfall is Hurricane Falls, which stands about 95 feet. From the North Rim Trail, plan on descending 531 steps to the bottom, as well as crossing a beautiful swinging bridge over the river. The problem is that you must climb those same 531 steps back out. Bring some water!!

If I had the Gorge Pass (they only give out 100 a day), I could get a more direct shot. Next time for sure….

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.
