Fabulous shot from +Travis Rhoads in #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark   this past week.  Beautiful fall colors are everywhere right now... AND the Park is now OPEN thanks to a deal struck between US/TN/NC.  
The Sluice

One of the best things about The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is that no matter how many times I go there, I always find something new.  Last weekend with +Jerry Denham was no different.  At our last stop I came across this cascade/feature that I had not seen before.  The low water levels probably meant that it was visible and accessible.  But when I saw it, I knew I had to shoot it.  The morning light coming down through the trees was just too good to pass up.  I know Jerry shot one here too, looking forward to his take on it.

Mingo Falls 5.2 miles from #cherokee   #nc   
Get to this beautiful 175+ ft #waterfall  >

Shown here are some of the bottom cascades, near the foot bridge over Mingo Creek.  
I guess you'll have to go to see the rest :)

Crabtree Falls in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina.   Find this waterfall just off of the #blueridgeparkway  near mile post 339... also near #ashevillenc  .
Excellent work from +Stephen Hancock  #waterfall  
I just added a new #Waterfall photo to 500px from my trip to North Carolina in 2012. Wow does time ever fly.

Thanks for the comments +Stephen Hancock .  Love this shot in the winter.  The road can be very dangerous anytime of year... traffic + curves in the summer months... then curves + ice in the winter.  Always an adventure! Cheers!
