Woodfin Cascades - Blue Ridge Parkway, N.C.

This little roadside waterfall was a pleasant surprise while driving along the parkway on my way to the Smokies. As I passed the Mt. Lynn Lowry overlook I couldn't help but notice a really big waterfall off on the distant mountainside. I stopped and took a few telephoto shots and then proceeded up the parkway. The next overlook was the Woodfin Cascades overlook where I stopped and poked around a little. I explored down the hill a little ways to the stream but didn't see anything picture worthy. The waterfall I saw off in the distance is on private property, so I didn't bother venturing too far down the mountain. I hiked back up to the car, but before leaving I figured I'd see what it looked like where it crossed under the parkway and this little cascade was what I saw. A neat little surprise for sure.
