Upper Creek Falls – 2016’s Best Autumn Waterfall

  My best fall outing in 2016 came on October 20.  The season had been a let down for the most part due to the extremely warm and dry conditions most of the summer and fall.  I had an aggressive plan this year primarily based on the dates of some of my favorite photos from... Continue Reading →

Dingmans Falls

I recently made a change to my job that allows for some periodic traveling. One of the huge benefits to this has been the opportunity to see waterfalls outside of my home region.  My recent trip over the last week in August took me to New Jersey.  The first thing that comes to most people's...

King Creek Falls – Winter 2016

King Creek Falls was the main waterfall I was here to see on this late February afternoon.  I made a full day of it though, stopping along the way at White Owl Falls, and Spoonauger Falls.  Both Falls had impressive waterflows.  It was a dreary, cloudy day.  It had all the makings of an epic...

I reside in central NC, and I make trips into central and southern West Virginia several times a year.  Northern West Virginia doubles the 2 1/2 hour ride I normally set aside for West Virginia...

High Falls in DuPont State Forest 

I haven't been to DuPont State Forest in several years now.  It is a great place, with some wonderful waterfalls.  These waterfalls are some of the very early ones visited that really planted the "Waterfall Chasing" seed in me.  However, due to its ease of access, numerous trails, numerous waterfalls varying in size and shape,...

Elakala Falls #1 on Shays Run

Blackwater Falls was my main destination when traveling into northern West Virginia in June.  I had ideas further south, closer to home, but due to the devastating floods that central West Virginia was suffering,  I had to either alter my destination or go home.  I had no idea how serious the floods were until I...
