~ Minnehaha Falls, Rabun Co. ~

Forgot my tripod, so this was the slowest shutter speed I could manage.

~ Mill Creek Falls, Towns Co. ~
While impressive to see and hear, this pair of waterfall slides, which each drop
about 150 feet, then merge and drop another 150 feet, is difficult to photograph
due to thick rhododendron and mountain laurel surrounding the steep banks.

Springbox
Remains of an old spring box built by CCC boys back in the 1930s, when they
were developing roads/trails and performing reforestation tasks in the area.



Joe_Creek_cascades
Cascade on Joe Creek illustrates the "stair steps" characteristic of the falls in this area,
including Panther, Angel and Minnehaha Falls.   In technical terms, the water cascades
over a lengthy series of offset horizontal schistose planes in the metamorphic rock.
