The waterfalls of the Cullasaja Gorge is visible on Highway 64 going from Franklin to Highlands. The falls are very pretty year round, but they were especially striking with portions frozen.
I thought the vegetation that had been sprayed with freezing water was especially pretty. We saw a couple that had walked down to the bottom of the falls or as close as you could get, but it was a very steep climb.
As you can see from the wide angle shot above, frozen water formations were all along the rocks above and below the road. Below is a closeup of those ice formations.
The roads were fairly clear as there had not been a lot of precipitation, but just several days of sub freezing weather. Joyce and I really enjoyed our trip. This is just the first stop so hope you come back to see the rest!
I enjoy papercrafting, scrapbooking, photography, travel and sewing. My latest hobby is knitting. I have been married for 37 years to my college sweetheart and we have two grown children, two more children (added through marriage...our children's spouses) a granddaughter and two grandsons. I love to create artwork and share with my friends.
