North Carolina Waterfalls

Transylvania County North Carolina sealThis is the seal of Transylvania County North Carolina, similar to the road sign we saw that day.

North Carolina waterfalls are extremely plentiful and amazingly beautiful.  It's become one of our favorite places to hike so least in the eastern United States.

In fact, on our first hiking trip to the Tar Heel state, we were overjoyed as we spotted the first road sign for Transylvania County, because it read, "Transylvania County...Land of Waterfalls".

We quickly fell in love with the state and her glorious outdoor scenery and activities.  It's definitely a hikers paradise!
