Discover the East’s king of Waterfalls after a half-mile paved walkway and watch it cascade over massive rock pillars and drop 411 feet to the river below. This sight was just magnificent from the top of the trail overlook,
From a lower overlook located at the bottom of 154 wooden steps (total 308 steps) but worth the view. One can rest on bench along the way. It’s worth every effort, even with a tripod and heavy camera and lenses.
Whitewater Falls on the Whitewater River is the last river in the Jocassee Gorge area just before you reach South Carolina. Some sources say it’s the highest falls east of the Mississippi river.
View from behind the Waterfalls.
Another shot from Cades Cove of these magnificent mountains. The Smokies as it is mostly referred to can be viewed from both states: North Carolina and Tennessee. Cades Cove for instance is an isolated valley located in the Tennessee section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, USA. This is Spring time, just think how this shot would look during the Fall.
