6/9/12 @ 12:28 p.m. Waterfall number three from my recent "Six Waterfalls in Six Hours" jaunt. This one, off an unpaved road about halfway between Cashiers and Highlands, North Carolina, was described in my research as being only 150 yards from the road. My research also indicated that, on a scale of 1 to 10, the "hike" to get there is a "9". The 150 yards happens to be a rather steep scramble down the side of a ravine through a rhododendron "hell" that requires you to duckwalk or slide on your rear most of the way down -- there is no trail. The directions said just to bushwack your way down in the general direction of the sound of the waterfall. The return trip up is also a bit of a challenge, especially with camera gear. The payoff, as the picture above aptly illustrates, is not exactly spectacular, but this is one of those "I went to all the trouble to get there and take this picture, so I'm going to post it" kind of things. It will probably be awhile before I bother to "find" this one again!
