Roaring Fork Falls

Roaring Fork Falls - Wide Angle

Depending on who you ask, this waterfall is either 45ft high, or 100ft long. Either way it was a very picturesque and edifying cascade. We ventured here on the same day we went to Setrock Creek Falls. We barely had to put forth any effort to get there, as the hike was very easy.

According to my NC Waterfalls book, the author boast a mere beauty rating of 7 for this waterfall. It may be that I'm easy to please, but I was utterly enraptured by the angelic essence it held. I watched the cascade of water rush down as it meandered through the moss covered rocks, it was beautiful. Beauty rating, beauty schmating.......his is always different than mine would be :o)

I finally got my new tripod today, although the weather wasn't conducive to me running out to break it in. I did, however, take photos of the tripod itself. I really am in love with it, and it does make me feel a bit more professional; especially when it's compared to the cheap old Samsonite that broke on me a few weeks ago. Tomorrow I'll be using it for sure, no if, ands, or buts about it!
