As the summer 2014 was coming to a close, I was pushing, trying to get in as many new waterfalls as I could. There is just something special about hiking to new waterfalls: the anticipation, and all of the “unknown” factors that come with them. I find that summer is the best time to explore new areas, and take on the “unknown” factors. I have many waterfalls remaining….just in NC alone left to explore around for the first time. This mid September day, I had chosen Big Bradley Falls in the Saluda, NC area.
