Rainbow Falls – Short Autumn Video

New for 2014!! In an effort to improve the waterfall experience for everyone, I have made a few tweaks, changes and added Videopress. This will now allow me to present blogs with video. I think a good short video can really add a new dynamic to the viewer/reader, especially when presenting something like a waterfall.

I can think of no better waterfall to begin with than Rainbow Falls on the Horsepasture River just south of Sapphire , NC. This waterfall is a 150 foot, large volume waterfall that photos often do not do it justice. This video will show its true size. While the video is short, and not steady, the kids that were at the base taking “selfies” really helped me show this waterfalls size and power with their presence. While the leafs were peaking, this was truly a beautiful scene to enjoy. I probably spent 45 minutes here before heading upstream for Turtleback Falls and Drift Falls. I hope you enjoy and Happy New Year!!

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.
