The Harpers!! North Harper Creek Falls & Harper Creek Falls

It’s hard to believe this post is nearly 3 years old now. Where is the time going so fast! I was hoping to get out today and enjoy this 60 degree January day in the Wilson Creek area, but could not get away from work.

Waterfalls Hiker

Today, I took the opportunity to visit two of my favorite waterfalls in the Wilson Creek Wilderness: North Harper Creek Falls, and Harper Creek Falls. Similar names, but different waterfalls on different creeks. The weather for this spring day hike was fantastic, deep blue sky and temps about 60. It was a perfect day to hike. My decision for hiking to The Harpers was made due to a very special young lady named Harper Grace turning 1 today. I could not make it to Atlanta for her party, but I can hike to 2 waterfalls that could be…..named after her. (Lol) Happy Birthday Harper!!!
