Linville Falls in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC #northcarolinapioneers

Linville Falls in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Linville FallsThe falls are situated on the Linville River, which is a tributary of the Catawba River. As one approaches, he encounters the wild scenery as it has thrived for hundreds of years, as though Nature planted the surrounding forest in every imaginable spot in a futile attempt to cloak this beauty from the eyes of the world. Then suddenly there is the loud roaring sound of musical water as it plunges itself into a deep pool hemmed in by gray granite rock. The falls are about 150 feet broad and the water source threads through lofty cliffs clustered in a profusion of beautiful vines and flowers. And all along the gorge, waiting to be discovered, are numerous enchanting caverns.  Burke Co. NC Genealogy and Historical Stories
